ثلاث قصص قصيرة مختصرة
كتبت في القرن التاسع عشر
عن الأشباح التي يخلّفها الميتون
فكان الاعتقاد مازال قائماً بأن شبح الجثة المقتولة يعود لينتقم


قرأت نسخ مختصرة من القصص, لأن العمر أقصر من أن أحيط بكل الروايات الكلاسيكية السابقة التي فاتتني. وأنا أريد فعلاً أن ألم بهم.

ولكن بما أن هذه القصص كانت من نوعية قصص الرعب
والتي تعتمد بشكل كبير على تشويقنا لما سيحدث
فقط أفقدها الاختصار كثيراً من رونقها
