Summary

"Everyone knows ghosts don't exist, right? So it should be no problem to read these four original short novels in the evening, in the gathering gloom, as your home creaks and shifts around you." "Begin with Brian Lumley, a grand master of horror and author of the popular Necroscope series, as he opens the collection with the tense "The Place of Waiting." The moors of Devon, England, and home to many ghosts, but none as fearsome as the red-eyed specter that refuses to accept his death." "Orson Scott Card puts a new spin on one of literature's most famous ghosts in "Hamlet's Father." What if the former king of Denmark was not killed by his treacherous brother for his crown, but by someone else, as punishment for the darkest of crimes? Would his troubled son still seek revenge?" "The patrons of an Edinburgh tavern are introduced to a beverage with all unusual history in "The Haunted Single Mall" by Marvin Kaye, a clever and spooky tale about ghost stories and the people who love them." "Tanith Lee offers "Strindberg's Ghost Sonata," a chilling tale set in an alternate Russia. When a poor man is rescued from certain death by hospitable strangers, he discovers that he is not a guest in their haunted tenement building - he is a prisoner destined to become a sacrifice."--BOOK JACKET.
