About this item

There's nothing like a good ghost story to give you a spine-tingling fright on a dark winter's night. Gathered in this haunting collection are thirty-four of the very best of their genre by British and American masters whose classic tales have become even more compelling over the years. Thrill to Henry James' tale of vengeance between two sisters married to the same man in "The Romance of Some Old Cloths." Tremble at Charlotte Bronte's story of the imperious Napoleon's experience with a ghost. Travel with Sir Walter Scott to a beautiful English mansion with one terrible bedroom in 'The Tapestried Chamber.' Laugh at Oscar Wilde's amusing parody, a tale of a British ghost tormented by an American family in "The Canterville Ghost." Quaver at Edgar Allen Poe's haunting story of "The Oval Portrait." The introduction features brief descriptions of the personal lives of each writer, showing how their individual experiences, such as Guy de Maupassant's and Edgar Allan Poe's insanity, and Thomas Hardy's career in Gothic revival architecture, are reflected in their horror writing. These tales of realms beyond our own will thrill you through and through.
