2) They Do Return...But Gently Lead Them Back
This consist of 15 short stories mainly about ghosts and superstitions
I have heard some of the superstition before like the one about knocking noise from a coffin means someone will be dying soon; the one about boy being dress like a girl to deceive bad spirit/God; and about dead spirit lingering on earth.
3) O Singapore! : Stories in Celebration
8 tales about Singaporean and their "kiasuness".
Look out for the story titled "Write, Right, Rite" ; or "how Catherine Lim Tries To Offer Only The Best On The Alter Of Good Singapore Writing". Very entertaining
4) The Woman's Book of Superlatives
Stories about the sufferings of women in the hands of men. Sad.
