A frame story places a group of characters alone in a house reputed to be haunted, and then lets various Victorian authors write the story of each room. It has a foreword by Wesley Stace, a.k.a. musician John Wesley Harding, with lots of interesting information. (For instance, as originally published, the stories didn't have any authors listed, so many of them are mistakenly attributed to Dickens.)

There's nothing at all scary here, but some of the stories are funny, and some are moving.
