Ghost Stories (Everyman's Library Pocket Classics Series). Washington, Peter (EDT).

Ghost Stories (Everyman's Library Pocket Classics Series).

The Everyman selection of ghost stories includes examples from this period by major writers such as Robert Louis Stevenson, Guy de Maupassant, Henry James and .

M. R. James is featured as a specialist in the genre. Later writers include Elizabeth Bowen, Penelope Lively and Ray Bradbury.

This is a glorious collection of some of the best sleuths in the business. It includes creators such as Poe and Conan Doyle to Hammet, Christie, Chandler, Rendell and Rankin.

A new anthology of classic ghost stories—the second volume in the beautiful and collectible Pocket Classics format.The chilling classic stories gathered here offer a remarkable variety of approaches to the theme of haunting. Revenge comes from beyond the grave in Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Body-Snatcher,” while visions of the dead come between the living in Henry James’s “The Friends of the Friends.” P. G. Wodehouse gives us a farcical take on the haunted house in “Honeysuckle Cottage,” and in L. P. Hartley’s “W.S.,” a writer is fatally stalked by his own aggrieved creation.Here are ghosts of every stripe and intent in stories from writers as varied as Elizabeth Bowen and Jorge Luis Borges, Eudora Welty and Vladimir Nabokov, Ray Bradbury and Edith Wharton, among others. In the hands of these masters, the ghost story ranges far beyond mere horror to encompass comedy and tragedy, pathos and drama, and even a touch of poetry.

If you are a lover of ghost stories then you will like most of
the tales in this book. I would have purchased the book if only
for the tales written by P. G. Wodehouse and Ray Bradbury. I hadnt
realized that Wodehouse wrote any ghost like tales. This one is
a pure delight; you will love it. Then the one by Bradbury:
Another Fine Mess you've gotten us in. If those words sound
familiar you are on the right track. It is weird, strange and
lovable.

Last year I bought the Everyman's Pocket Classics Collection entitled Christmas Stories, and I was so pleased to have found a collection of short stories that evoked a sense of the holidays and the winter without being super-cheesy or commercial. The authors they selected are all heavy-hitters and the writing was a lot of fun to read. When I bought Ghost Stories, I think my expectation was too high, which is why I was a little disappointed. The stories are still great, but they aren't as dark or creepy as I had hoped for. From what I've read so far (about 1/3 through the book) the stories are simply stories that have ghosts in them (in some form or other). And I was surprised that they hadn't included any Edgar Allan Poe. In any case, I've still really enjoyed reading them, introducing myself to authors I've never read before and there is an element of spookiness that they do have. I'd definitely recommend this book, though it was slightly different than what I was expecting.
