Ghost Stories (Hardcover)
Framed by the ragged opening of the bricks, hardly seen in the dim light, was a face, an ivory image, more beautiful than any antique bust, but drawn and distorted by unspeakable agony...This chilling collection of classic ghost stories brings together some of the most terrifying tales from the genre's most accomplished writers, including M. R. James, Sheridan Le Fanu and E. F. Benson. From the shifting glass eyes of a porcelain doll, to the slumped figure by the fireside, the apparitions within these fearful pages will haunt readers long after the tale ends. ABOUT THE SERIES: Arcturus Retro Classics are beautiful hardcover collections which bring together the best short stories from across the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres.
