    DescriptionWith twenty-four more chilling tales culled from the Fontana Book of Great Ghost Stories series, edited from 1972 to 1984 by acclaimed horror fiction writer and anthologist R. Chetwynd-Hayes, this follow-up to 2004's Great Ghost Stories features rarities and classics from the masters of the ghost story like O. Henry, J. Sheridan Le Fanu, M.R. James, and Guy de Maupassant, as well as haunting stories from lesser-known greats. From a dead man emerging from a hole in the cabin floor in Ambrose Bierce's "The Night-Doings at 'Deadman's'" and Mrs. Crowe's tale of supernatural experiences in polite Victorian society, to Richard Burton's "authentic" account of a haunting in the Castle of Weixelstein in 1559 to Emily Bronte's poem "The Horrors of Sleep" about a mystic world that exists just beyond the frontiers of ours, this collection resurrects two dozen eerie tales of suspense and horror.
