"The Best Ghost Stories Ever" edited by Christopher Krovatin
“Watch your step. Be careful what you do. Ghosts are everywhere. In houses new and old. In lonely walks and grim gatherings. Underneath the wallpaper. Riding through the night. These are some of the spookiest ghost stories ever written, from authors including Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, and Henry James. Prepare to be haunted...”
