Book of Ghost Stories
Noonday Press; October 1984
Dahl (1916-1990) was a prickly, colourful character who
wrote maliciously funny short stories for adults as well
as better-known works for children. As he relates in the
introduction, he started the research for this book by making
a call to the celebrated ghost-story anthologist/writer,
Lady Cynthia Asquith. He then went to the British Museum
Library, and read a total of 749 tales before selecting
14 for this anthology. His criterion: "Spookiness is,
after all, the real purpose of the ghost story. It should
give you the creeps and disturb your thoughts." Included
here are not only acknowledged classics by Robert Aickman,
Edith Wharton, J. S. Le Fanu, and F. Marion Crawford, but
also tales by lesser-known writers such as L. P. Hartley,
Rosemary Timperley, Jonas Lie, Mary Treadgold, and A. M.
Burrage. The Washington Post writes, "Dahl's taste,
it will surprise no one, is impeccable."
Ghost Next Door
Mark Alan Morris
Universe Inc.; February 2003
Alan Morris has studied paranormal phenomena for a number
of years, and has documented many cases of ghostly activity.
Most people think of ghosts as rare, elusive creatures that
are more or less inaccessible to the average Joe. Sure,
we read about them, watch TV shows about them and tell stories
about them, but we'll probably never run into one right?
Don't be so sure! Even if you've never personally encountered
a ghost, chances are you know someone who has. This book
takes a revealing look into the lives of who've had experiences
in the realm of the unexplained. Whether you're a true believer
in ghosts or a hard-nosed skeptic, you're sure to get a
chill or two when you read these genuinely spooky stories.
And you'll probably find that ghostly encounters are a lot
more common than you had imagined. Could there be a "haunted
house" in your town? Perhaps on your very street? Maybe
even right next door?
