Great Ghost Stories by Joseph Lewis French, (1858–1936) was a novelist, editor, poet and newspaper man. The New York Times noted in 1925 that he may be "the most industrious anthologist of his time." He is known for his popular themed collections, and published over twenty-five books between 1918 and his death in 1936. He founded two magazines, The New West (c. 1887) and The Wave (c. 1890). Afterwards he worked for newspapers "across the country" contributing poetry and articles. He struggled financially, and in 1927 the New York Graphic, a daily tabloid, published an autobiographical article they convinced him to write, entitled "I'm Starving – Yet I'm in Who's Who as the Author of 27 Famous Books." Twelve Great Tales of the Supernatural.

About the Author:

HarperCollins Publishers is a proud supporter of First Book, a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to give children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their own new books. The primary goal of First Book is to work with existing literacy programs to distribute new books to children who, for economic reasons, have little or no access to books. In this way, First Book effectively leverages the heroic efforts of local tutoring, mentoring, and family literacy organizations as they work to reach children who need help the most. First Book distributes millions of books to hundreds of thousands of children nationwide each year. For more information on First Book, please visit www.firstbook.org.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-These 13 stories are written by such well-known authors as H. G. Wells, Bram Stoker, and Madeleine L'Engle. The selections range from psychological thrillers such as H. P. Lovecraft's "The Music of Erich Zann," in which a musician must play in order to keep an unspeakable evil at bay, to stories with surprise endings, like that of W. W. Jacobs's "The Monkey's Paw," in which the characters discover that it's not always good to have wishes come true. Averaging 15 pages in length, each tale is accompanied by a full-page, full-color illustration. While these impressive watercolors may make the collection more appealing to readers, most of the stories, with the exception of Moser's retelling of "Polly Vaughn," Philippa Pearce's "Samantha and the Ghost," and James Haskins's version of "Dead Aaron," can easily be found in other collections.
