A spirited Black Lizard anthology with over a thousand pages of haunted—and haunting—ghost tales. Includes eerie vintage ghost illustrations. The ghost story is perhaps the oldest of all the supernatural literary genres and has captured the imagination of almost every writer to put pen to the page. Here, Edgar Award-winning editor Otto Penzler has followed his keen sense of the supernatural to collect the most chilling and uncanny tales in the canon. These spectral stories span more than a hundred years, from modern-day horrors by Joyce Carol Oates, Chet Williamson and Andrew Klavan, to pulp yarns from August Derleth, Greye La Spina, and M. L. Humphreys, to the atmospheric Victorian tales of Rudyard Kipling, Edith Wharton, and H. P. Lovecraft, not to mention modern works by the likes of Donald E. Westlake and Isaac Asimov that are already classics. Some of these stories have haunted the canon for a century, while others are making their first ghoulish appearance in book form. Whether you prefer possessive poltergeists, awful apparitions, or friendly phantoms, these stories are guaranteed to thrill you, tingle the spine, or tickle the funny bone, and keep you turning the pages with fearful delight. Including such classics as “The Monkey’s Paw” and “The Open Window” and eerie vintage illustrations, and also featuring haunted mansions, midnight frights, lovers from beyond the grave, rapping, tapping, wailing shades, and ghosts, ghouls, and specters galore!

Fourteen terrifying ghost stories chosen by the master of the macabre, Roald Dahl. 'Spookiness is the real purpose of the ghost story. It should give you the creeps and disturb your thoughts . . .'

Here are fourteen of his favourite ghost stories, including Sheridan Le Fanu's The Ghost of a Hand, Edith Wharton's Afterward, Cynthia Asquith's The Corner Shop and Mary Treadgold's The Telephone. Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson.

25 chilling short stories by outstanding female writers. Women have always written exceptional stories of horror and the supernatural. This anthology aims to showcase the very best of these, from Amelia B. Edwards's 'The Phantom Coach', published in 1864, through past luminaries such as Edith Wharton and Mary Elizabeth Braddon, to modern talents including Muriel Gray, Sarah Pinborough and Lilith Saintcrow. From tales of ghostly children to visitations by departed loved ones, and from heart-rending stories to the profoundly unsettling depiction of extreme malevolence, what each of these stories has in common is the effect of a slight chilling of the skin, a feeling of something not quite present, but nevertheless there. If anything, this showcase anthology proves that sometimes the female of the species can also be the most terrifying . . .

The narratives in this new book are more than just tales of haunting spirits; they are also about our land and our history, and Ed breathes life into them as few writers have done before. This is quite simply the largest and best collection ever published on the subject. Hal Roth, Tidewater Times columnist Maryland has been an important crossroads since its settlement more than 375 years ago. That strategic location has provided the Old Line State with a rich history and a large body of folklore, from the seafaring legends of the Eastern Shore to the mountain tales of the rugged western counties. Included in this collection of more than 140 stories are tales of ghosts of executed Hessians in Cecil County, the haunts of Fort McHenry, spirits of notorious Maryland residents John Wilkes Booth and Edgar Allen Poe, tragic specters at the Antietam Battlefield, and the tortured ghosts of prisoners of war at Point Lookout.

FOOTSTEPS IN THE SNOW explores the concept of whether Ghosts really do exist? The four stories are all quite different but each deals with the apparent physical manifestation of a being from 'another place'. Ghosts? Maybe? * Jeff is out walking his dog in the snow through some woods when he meets a young girl. Who is she? Why is she there? * Russell takes a career break from his job to write a book but he meets Alice and after a passionate affair their final meeting is bizarre. * Matt and Sarah have renovated an old cottage to create their dream home and all is well until one day out riding he meets a strange man by an old oak tree. * Greg enrols at a Business Management College to attend a four week programme but he soon finds all is not as it seems in the old house. So do ghosts exist and if so can you talk to them? Can they talk to you? Of course I don't know the answer and I doubt whether anyone does, or ever will - but I definitely wouldn't say that they don't exist! So read (and hopefully enjoy) the four stories in this book and then perhaps it will help you to make up your own mind on this interesting question of whether ghosts really exist? And if you get goosebumps or your hair stands on end as you come to the end of each of the tales, well then maybe you might just believe that ghosts do exist. After all you never know do you - they might!!
