Ten ghostly tales of the Gilded Age from one of America's finest writers -- Edith Wharton (1862-1937), author of The Age of Innocence, winner of the 1920 Pulitzer Prize.

"Wharton's graceful sentences create dramatic, populous tableaux and peel back layer after layer of artifice and pretense, of what we say and how we wish to appear, revealing the hidden kernel of what human beings are like, alone and together." FRANCINE PROSE

"Despite all her privileges, despite her strenuous socializing, she remained an isolate and a misfit, which is to say, a born writer." JONATHAN FRANZEN

"...Wharton has as much to say to us now as she did to readers in the first half of the [twentieth] century. She is indisputably one of our finest writers." SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

With a wife he loves and an exciting London-based career, architect Charles Waterston's life seems in perfect balance. Nothing in his comfortable existence prepares him for the sudden end to his ten-year marriage—or his unwanted transfer to his firm's New York office. With nothing left to lose, Charlie takes a leave of absence from his job to drive through New England, hoping to make peace with himself.

Christmas is approaching when Charlie leaves New York, heading to Vermont to ski. But a sudden, blinding snowstorm strands him in a small Massachusetts town. There, as if by chance, Charlie meets an elderly widow who offers to rent him her most precious possession: a remote, exquisite lakeside chateau. Hidden deep in the woods, it once belonged to a woman who lived and died there two centuries before. Her name was Sarah Ferguson. And from the moment Charlie sets foot inside the chateau's graceful depths, he feels her presence, and longs to know more about the life she led.

It is Christmas Eve when Charlie first glimpses her, a beautiful young woman with jet black hair. He thinks it is a neighbor playing a joke on him, until he finds her diaries hidden away in an old trunk. As he begins to turn the brittle, dusty pages, Sarah Ferguson comes alive. Intrigued and unafraid, Charlie immerses himself in the diaries, eager to learn more about the woman for whom the house was built. Sarah's first entry is dated 1789, the year she arrived in America. Without self-pity or sentiment, she writes of her harrowing journey from her native England, having fled the brutality of her aristocratic husband. Settling in Massachusetts, Sarah finds an unfamiliar land seething with the turbulence of the Indian wars. Determined to start a new life in the vast new world, Sarah finds freedom—and danger—as she builds her home in the wilderness and meets a man who will transform her life. His name is François de Pellerin, a French nobleman adopted by Indians and drawn into the battle for the growing nation. Their fateful union is a testament to a love so powerful it reaches across the centuries. And for Charlie Waterston, caught between Sarah's world and his own, their story is a gift—one that gives him the courage to let go of his past, and the freedom to grasp a future that is right before his eyes.

Curl up by the fire and enter the sinister, supernatural world of Montague Rhodes James, the master of the English ghost story. An influence on writers from H. P. Lovecraft to Stephen King, James created tales of understated horror that continue to transfix readers 80 years after his death. Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, Vol. 2 comprises graphic adaptations of four spine-chilling stories by M. R. James: “Number 13,” “Count Magnus,” “Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad,” and “The Treasure of Abbot Thomas.” Filled with intrigue, suspense, and intellectual adventure, these enthralling tales of terror plunge readers into a world of creeping dread, where rationality is challenged and the mundane collides with the supernatural. Capturing James’s trademark atmosphere of pervasive disquiet, Leah Moore and John Reppion’s subtly crafted adaptations breathe fresh life into these classic stories about restless phantoms and ill-advised academic exploration.

Whether you believe it or not, whether you accept it or not, there are some things in the world that cannot be attributed to anything other than paranormal activity. Some spirits have been through tragedy so heartbreaking, they are trapped within that singular instance that stole their lives away – they relive that moment over and over and over. The world is an infinite place. We don’t entirely understand it – we believe in what we see and what we hear and try to make sense of that alone. Things that are easy to quantify, easy to explain with science – some of them are frightening in their intensity, such as a natural disaster, but these things don’t keep us up at night from fear. And then, there are those things that we cannot understand. The complexity of the human mind is such that what it cannot perceive or measure, it fears. And such things do exist – we can hear them, feel them, sense them. But we cannot quantify them, because their behavior does not remain consistent and there seems to be no rational explanation to them. In this book, we will take a look at the different places and spots on our planet where these inexplicable things exist. Everyone who has been to these places has come back changed; some have even gone just to see for themselves what it’s like; their accounts are disturbing...

THE HAUNTING: True Ghost Stories To Keep You Up At Night

Stories about ghosts, spirits or apparitions, have fascinated people of all ages, from many different cultures, over thousands of years. This is true regardless of whether the ghosts have appeared in films, books, or suddenly in the middle of the night. Fictional stories about ghosts, from Dicken’s The Christmas Carol, to films such as The Exorcist (1973) or Ghostbusters (2016) show how varied and popular ghost stories in the English-speaking world are. However, despite the vivid descriptions and special effects used to bring these fictional ghost stories to life, the tales in this collection are perhaps more astounding, because they are all believed to have taken place - these are the true ghosts stories that continue to defy the sceptical, while suggesting there may be more to this universe than meets the eye.

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.
