Synopsis: Who better to investigate the literary spirit world than that supreme connoisseur of the unexpected, Roald Dahl? Of the many permutations of the macabre or bizarre, Dahl was always especially fascinated by the classic ghost story. As he realtes in the erudite introduction to this volume, he read some 749 supernatural tales at the British Museum Library before selecting the 14 that comprise this anthology. "Spookiness is, after all, the real purpose of the ghost story," Dahl writes. "It should give you the creeps and disturb your thoughts." For this superbly disquieting collection, Dahl offers favorite tales by such masterful storytellers as E. F. Benson, J. Sheridan Le Fanu, Rosemary Timperley, and Edith Wharton.

Product Description: Who better to investigate the literary spirit world that the supreme connoisseur of the unexpected, Roald Dahl? His own short stories have teased and twisted imaginations in their millions, but amongst the many permutations of the macabre, Dahl has always felt a special fascination for the classic ghost story. In this book of ghost stories, he has selected fourteen of his favourites for this superbly disquieting volume.
