I love the Everyman's Library Pocket Classics collection, and not just because they look gorgeous together on a bookshelf. It's the story selection that make these books so great. And Ghost Stories is no exception. Don't expect a bunch of traditional ghouls and goblins in these pages. Here you'll find humor, sadness, existential crises...ok, and a few sinister ghouls and goblins. These are scary stories of a more thought-provoking nature; still spooky but written by some of literature's heavyweights (Wodehouse's hilarious "Honeysuckle Cottage" is flawless). Absolutely perfect for windy, dreary, October nights. And great for reading aloud! So gather together, turn off that TV, get yourself some hot cider, and snuggle under some blankets for these lovely, eerie, hair-raising tales.
