Classic Ghost Stories: Eighteen Spine-Chilling Tales of Terror and the Supernatural
1 journaler for this copy...
F. Marion Crawford's "The Screaming Skull" is a chilling tale of murder and a ghost desperate for vengeance, told in a subtle way.
"Canon Alberic's Scrap-book" by M. R. James, one of his classic stories of a curious academic who stumbles across something out of nightmare.
Kipling's "The Phantom Rickshaw" is about a man who broke off an affair with a married woman once he tired of her - only to find that she wouldn't let go, even beyond the grave.
E. F. Benson's "The Man Who Went Too Far" describes a man who seeks pure joy from life - at the cost of avoiding, even being cruel to, anyone whose appearance or behavior seems less than purely lovely. His search for the great god Pan is rewarded, but - as his friend tried to tell him - he completely missed the point of the balance between light and dark.
And there's more: Stevenson's classic "The Body-Snatcher", Goethe's "The Erl-King," Poe's "Ligeia", and others. Good collection!
