S. LeFanu's «An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street," with a mysterious old mansion as the focal point; Mary E. Wilkins' “The Lost Ghost,” in which a strange child's disturbing presence instills fear and foreboding in all those she encounters; Robert Louis Stevenson's “The Body-Snatchers”; «Mrs. Zant and the Ghost,” by Wilkie Collins; and other gripping works by Charles Dickens, Henry James, Ralph Cram, Mrs. Henry Wood, Amelia B.

James.Rich in detail and ghoulish incidents, this modestly priced collection will thrill readers who appreciate tales of terror as well as devotees of well-crafted literature.
