Known and named for its lush, green surroundings, Greenwood, South Carolina, has recently been branded with the following statement: “There’s Always Something Blooming in Greenwood.” However, after reading Ghost Stories of Uptown Greenwood, you may find that this quaint town deserves a new slogan: “You’re Never Alone in Uptown Greenwood”!
Ghost Stories of Uptown Greenwood includes a multitude of hauntings and ghostly happenings that have been experienced and reported by average, everyday, unsuspecting people. These stories may entice you to ask yourself: “Is it possible that ghosts really do exist?” Additionally, they may give you the travel bug so you can see for yourself if these tales hold any credibility, especially if Greenwood isn’t that far of a jaunt.
Sit back, relax, enjoy the stories held within this book, and ask yourself the ever-important question . . . do you believe in ghosts?

I live next to a haunted house.

I began to suspect something was wrong with the gothic building when its family fled in the middle of the night, the children screaming, the mother crying. They never came back to pack up their furniture.

No family stays long. Animals avoid the place. Once, I thought I saw a woman’s silhouette pacing through the upstairs room… but that seems impossible; no one was living there at the time.

A new occupant, Anna, has just moved in. I paid her a visit to warn her about the building. I didn’t expect us to become friends, but we did. And now that Marwick House is waking up, she’s asked me to stay with her.

I never intended to become involved with the building or its vengeful, dead inhabitant. But now I have to save Anna… before it’s too late for the both of us.

Ghost Stories of an Antiquary

In the twentieth-century literature of the supernatural, the single most important book, in the opinion of most scholars and enthusiasts, is Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, by Montague Rhodes James. First printed in 1904, it is the landmark book that established the modern horror story. It has been reprinted more times than any other book in this field, and it contains several of the best ghost stories in the English language.
The antiquary here is M. R. James, Provost of Eton, one of the most formidable scholars that England has ever produced, who has drawn upon an unmatched knowledge of the hidden byways of the past to form a series of inimitable stories. Among them are such favorites as "Number Thirteen," "Canon Alberic's Scrap-book," and "Oh, Whistle, and I'll Come to You, My Lad." Common to all of them is the breath of "the evil that dieth not but lieth in wait."
This edition reprints for the first time in recent years the four original illustrations that James McBride prepared while James was working on this, his first collection.

At the end of the day, not a lot separates life from death. My name is Eleanor Alba Benedict. I am very intelligent and studious, and I like to keep things clean and organized. I’m shy and the only thing close to a sport that I can do is ballet. The highlights of my world are my academic grades and almost non-existent social life. I am ordinary. At the end of the day, not a lot separates life from death. My name is Eleanor Alba Benedict. My parents died in an untimely plane crash and left me to inherit a cold manor in Scotland. I, along with my little brother, Socrates, had to uproot all we’ve ever known and move to this unknown place. We are surrounded by frightening, unexplainable things. I am no longer ordinary.

Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)

Wordsworth Editions
Show/hide full description or See full details
Traumatised by ghost stories in her youth, Pulitzer Prize winning author Edith Wharton (1862 -1937) channelled her fear and obsession into creating a series of spine-tingling tales filled with spirits beyond the grave and other supernatural phenomena. While claiming not to believe in ghosts, paradoxically she did confess that she was frightened of them. Wharton imbues this potent irrational and imaginative fear into her ghostly fiction to great effect. In this unique collection of finely wrought tales Wharton demonstrates her mastery of the ghost story genre. Amongst the many supernatural treats within these pages you will encounter a married farmer bewitched by a dead girl; a ghostly bell which saves a woman's reputation; the weird spectral eyes which terrorise the midnight hours of an elderly aesthete; the haunted man who receives letters from his dead wife; and the frightening power of a doppelganger which foreshadows a terrible tragedy. Compelling, rich and strange, the ghost stories of Edith Wharton, like vintage wine, have matured and grown more potent with the passing years.

A National Bestseller, a New York Times Notable Book, and an Entertainment Weekly Best Book of the Year

It's the summer of 1854, and London is just emerging as one of the first modern cities in the world. But lacking the infrastructure-garbage removal, clean water, sewers-necessary to support its rapidly expanding population, the city has become the perfect breeding ground for a terrifying disease no one knows how to cure. As the cholera outbreak takes hold, a physician and a local curate are spurred to action-and ultimately solve the most pressing medical riddle of their time.

In a triumph of multidisciplinary thinking, Johnson illuminates the intertwined histories of the spread of disease, the rise of cities, and the nature of scientific inquiry, offering both a riveting history and a powerful explanation of how it has shaped the world we live in.
