A very nice collection of classic ghost stories, with some excellent "literary" selections you might not think of when asked about ghost stories. The Kindle version is a but pricy, but there seem to be plenty of the paperbacks used, and it was nicely formatted, compact little volume. Want to look for its companion volume Classic Horror Stories but either it hasn't been publushed yet, or isn't going to be. Either way, this was an excellent read.
