Description

Dive into the eerie depths of the supernatural with “Haunted Tales,” the latest anthology from award-winning editors Leslie S. Klinger and Lisa Morton. Following their successful compilations “Ghost Stories” and “Weird Women,” this new collection promises to enthrall readers with an array of ghostly narratives that linger long after the last page is turned.

“Haunted Tales” brings together a chilling mix of celebrated classics and hidden treasures in literature. Revel in the sheer terror of Algernon Blackwood’s “The Kit-Bag,” chuckle at the wry humor of Oscar Wilde’s “The Canterville Ghost,” and feel the creeping dread of F. Marion Crawford’s “The Screaming Skull.” But that’s just the beginning. This anthology also shines a light on lesser-known works by literary giants, including Virginia Woolf’s “A Haunted House,” H. G. Wells’s “The Story of the Inexperienced Ghost,” and Rudyard Kipling’s “They.”

Delving deeper, “Haunted Tales” resurrects stories that have unjustly faded into obscurity. Discover Dinah Mulock’s “M. Anastasius,” a tale so captivating that Charles Dickens hailed it as “the best ghost story ever written.” Experience the spine-tingling suspense of E. F. Benson’s “The Bus-Conductor,” and unravel the mysteries with Flaxman Lowe, fiction’s first psychic detective, in E. and H. Heron’s “The Story of the Spaniards, Hammersmith.”

“Haunted Tales” is not just a collection of ghost stories; it’s a journey through the many facets of the supernatural, curated by masters of the genre. Whether these stories are already beloved or waiting to be discovered, each one promises to surprise, astonish, and haunt readers long after the book is closed. This anthology is an essential addition to any horror or literature enthusiast’s collection, offering a unique blend of fear, fascination, and literary merit.
