Description

This wonderful collection of scary stories about ghosts and ghouls will captivate readers for hours. There are ghost tales from the masters of literature within these pages including contributions by Daniel De Foe, M.R. James, Edward Bulwer-Lytton, E.F. Benson, Algernon Blackwood, Rudyard Kipling, Ambrose Bierce, and others. "The Apparition of Mrs. Veal" "Canon Alberic's Scrap-Book" "The Woman's Ghost Story" "The Phantom Rickshaw" "The Damned Thing" "Dey Ain't No Ghosts"

What is the fascination we feel for the mystery of the ghost story? Is it of the same nature as the fascination which we feel for the mystery of the detective story? Of the latter fascination, the late Paul Armstrong used to say that it was because we are all as full of crime as Sing Sing -- only we don't dare. Thus, may I ask, are we not fascinated by the ghost story because, no matter what may be the scientific or skeptical bent of our minds, in our inmost souls, secretly perhaps, we are as full of superstition as an obeah man -- only we don't let it loose? Who shall say that he is able to fling off lightly the inheritance of countless ages of superstition? Is there not a streak of superstition in us all? We laugh at the voodoo worshiper -- then create our own hoodooes, our pet obsessions. It has been said that man is incurably religious, that if all religions were blotted out, man would create a new religion.
