Classic Ghost Tales Selected and Edited by Philip Dossick


Classic Ghost Tales is an altogether creepy anthology that unveils the world of the decaying undead often in midnight settings where imagination runs riot and terrible forces are unleashed.

Have you ever felt a strange presence around you, or heard a thump in the night, or gotten a chill for no reason at all?

Where lonely country houses, remote inns, ancient churches provide settings for unbearable menace from creatures seeking retribution and harm?

For this superbly disquieting collection, Philip Dossick has chosen twelve classic tales of the supernatural by such masters as Ambrose Bierce, Guy de Maupassant, Edgar Allan Poe and F. W. Harvey—stories that are downright chilling, scary and weird; stories guaranteed to stay with you through the darkest nights and coldest days.

PHILIP DOSSICK is the New York Times critically acclaimed writer and director of the motion picture The P.O.W.

He has written for television, including the outstanding drama, Transplant, produced by David Susskind for CBS.

His most recent books include Aztecs: Epoch Of Social Revolution, Sex And Dreams, Mark Twain In Seattle, The Naked Citizen: Notes On Privacy In The Twenty-First Century, Lurid Tales & Classic Oddities, Tales of Edgar Allan Poe, The Outline of History, Volumes I and II by H.G.
