Read full description of the books:



In the selection of these tales, the widest possible interpretation has been given to the term "ghost story". It would have been disastrous if a magnificent vampire story like Carmilla, or tales dealing with ghouls (Pickman's model), a werewolf (Gabriel-Ernest) and Black Magic (Casting the runes), had been excluded for the sake of adhering to a category which is at best imprecise. Any supernatural element in a story made it eligible for inclusion - those finally selected are the best.
