I have read a lot of ghost story anthologies so imagine my surprise in finding one with 'new' ghost stories that are not only very readable but also a very good scare.

All of the authors are women and a very eclectic group they are.We have Edith Wharton to Ruth Rendell.
I don't have a favorite story because all of them were wonderful.
The following are the author's:AS Bryant,Mary Butt

A fine collection of ghost stories by women writers, covering the whole of the 20th century and including a lot of stories I'd never encountered before.
