Summary
Ghost stories are irresistible to everyone, including many of today's greatest writers. This collection of haunting tales serves up chills and thrills with the intelligence and emotional resonance that only comes from great writing. Whether it's John Updike writing about a shadowy Indian in a coastal New England town or T Coraghessan Boyle's tale of a vengeful statue of the Virgin Mary, this collection shows how delicious it can be to curl up with master storytellers and the things that go bump in the night. Includes stories from John Updike, Peter Straub, Robert Coover, T Coraghessan Boyle, Kathryn Davis, David Huddle, W D Wetherell, Nicola Griffith, Brett Lott, Pamela Painter, Shelby Hearon, and Guy Vanderhaeghe.

Coraghessan Boyle and John Updike. Nicola Griffith imagines a troll imparting life wisdom to a child in the dark of night; Pamela Painter tells of a man whose wife inexplicably seals off more and more rooms in their big old house.
