              Classic Ghost Stories: A collection of chilling supernatural tales (EPUB ebook)

              By Brockman, Robin

              There's nothing like a good ghost story to give you a frisson of fear on a dark winter's night. Gathered in this haunting collection are twenty-seven of the very best of their genre by British and American masters. As well as contributions from established names, you will also fi...nd forgotten gems by unjustly neglected writers who deserve an opportunity to find a new readership. Among these is The Spectre of Tappington, taken from The Ingoldsby Legends which appeared in serial form in the 1830s and were immensely popular with Victorian readers. Their author, Thomas Ingoldsby, was in fact an English clergyman, Richard Barham, who, unlike most of the writers in this compilation, put pen to paper out of pure enjoyment rather than necessity. The name Edith Nesbit is better known to modern readers than Thomas Ingoldsby, although probably not in the context of adult fiction. Famous as a writer of children's fiction (most notably The Railway Children), she also had a talent for ghost stories, as you will discover when you come to Man-Size in Marble. So settle back and enjoy myriad journeys through the highways and byways of one of literature's most rewarding genres. Included here are: The Moonlit Road by Ambrose Bierce Miss Jeromette and the Clergyman by Wilkie Collins The Captain of the Pole-star by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle The Goblins Who Stole a Sexton by Charles Dickens The Old Nurse's Story by Elizabeth Gaskell The Withered Arm by Thomas Hardy The Hollow of the Three Hills by Nathaniel Hawthorne The Furnished Room by O. Henry The Haunted Mill by Jerome K. Jerome A Ghost by Guy de Maupassant The Oval Portrait by Edgar Allan Poe The Body Snatcher by Robert Louis Stevenson The Devil's Wage by W. M. Thackeray The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde

              Classic Tales of Horror: A collection of spine-tingling short stories (EPUB ebook)

              By Brockman, Robin

              Eerily vivid and yet never devoid of the beat of the human heart, Classic Tales of Horror presents the work of some of the world's most celebrated authors in a compilation designed to provide both a gripping read and glimpses of life beyond the realm of the everyday. Spooks and i...nexplicable things that go bump in the night have long exercised creative imaginations and provided source material for our greatest story-tellers, as this memorable collection confirms. The supernatural has been absorbed into the consciousness of most cultures, and continues to exert its fascination, despite the relentless march of science. Generations of writers have found it a rich source of inspiration and a compelling subject for exploration. Included in this collection are contributions from American, British and European writers who were at the height of their powers during a period which was recognized as the golden age of supernatural fiction, in the 19th and early 20th centuries. These classic tales are out of the top drawer of fiction writing, so expect to be surprised, held in suspense, amused, challenged and disturbed during your journey through the realm of the unknowable. Included here are: The Mortal Immortal by Mary Shelley A Vine on a House by Ambrose Bierce Hurst of Hurstcote by Edith Nesbit The Bottle Imp by R. L. Stevenson Dracula's Guest by Bram Stoker Wandering Willie's Tale by Sir Walter Scott The Lifted Veil by George Eliot Clarimonde by Theophile Gautier Thurlow's Christmas Story by John Kendrick Bangs
