The Mammoth Book of Haunted House Stories
Title: The Mammoth Book of Haunted House Stories
Author: Edited by Peter Haining
This chilling collection of new and classic tales of haunted houses and ghostly apparitions features contributions from Joan Aiken, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Ruth Rendell, Fay Weldon, Hugh Walpole, Robert Bloch, Ramsey Campbell, James Herbert, and other outstanding authors.
Expanded with great new stories, this is the biggest and best anthology of ghostly hauntings ever. Over 40 tales of visitation by the undead—from vengeful and violent spirits, set on causing harm to innocent people tucked up in their homes, to rarer and more kindly ghosts, returning from the grave to reach out across the other side. Yet others entertain desires of a more sinister bent, including the erotic. This new edition includes a selection of favorite haunted house tales chosen by famous screen stars such as Boris Karloff, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. In addition, a top ranking list of contributors includes Stephen King, Bram Stoker, Ruth Rendell, and James Herbert—all brought together by an anthologist who himself lives in a haunted house.
