From a 1st-century account of a haunted house by Pliny the Elder to a western tale by Annie Proulx, the ghost stories in this whopping anthology have a timeless appeal. Here are classics by Edgar Allan Poe ("The Tell-Tale Heart"), M.R. James ("Oh, Whistle and I'll Come to You, My Lad"), Sheridan Le Fanu ("Madame Crowl's Ghost"), Bram Stoker ("Dracula's Guest"), Charlotte Perkins Gilman ("The Yellow Wallpaper"), William Faulkner ("A Rose for Emily"), H.P. Lovecraft ("The Terrible Old Man"), and Saki ("The Open Window"). Here too are tales by authors not always associated with the genre, including Hilary Mantel, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Haruki Murakami, P.G. Wodehouse, Zora Neale Hurston, and even Alec Guinness.
