What to expect

Classic haunted house ghost stories curated by world-renowned filmmaker and horror genre authority John Landis.

This beautifully presented, highly collectable anthology features ghost stories that have enthralled, terrified and inspired, decade after decade. Some are relatively well known; others are long-lost treasures, awaiting rediscovery.

The selection includes tales of terror by Bram Stoker, H. P. Lovecraft and Percival Landon; studies of creeping dread by Edgar Allan Poe and Henry James; short, sharp shockers by Ambrose Bierce, M.R. James and Lafcadio Hearn; and comedic masterpieces by Oscar Wilde and Saki.

Mr Landis' own introduction explores each tale's fascinating impact on the contemporary horror genre.
