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.

Bloodcurdling Stories Of Haunted Houses, People And Unknown Creatures: Unusual And True Paranormal Hauntings As humans we have a fascination with the unknown. Our minds naturally drift towards finding out what we do not yet know. In the history of human civilization this desire to know the unknown has molded the thrust of progress. Our desire to explore the boundaries of our knowledge and experience have led to us setting foot on the moon, and on trying to figure out how the universe itself works, and how it all came about. However, the desire to understand what has not been understood, to experience what has not been experienced and learn what is unknown, is most truly realized in us in our deep fascination with the paranormal. The word is a combination of the root words ‘para’ and ‘normal’, with the understanding that anything that is ‘above’, or beyond our conceptions of normality, is paranormal. The word supernatural has also evolved from a similar context, coming from Latin and meaning ‘above nature’. Paranormal is different from a hypothesis, which, while also beyond our understanding are nevertheless based on scientific observation. Paranormal, on the other hand, refers to a more instinctive and imaginative understanding of what cannot be explained. The paranormal is often derided as untrue or full of falsities, but in my opinion it is actually a keynote to human progress. As humans we have a fascination with the supernatural, which draws us to our primal instincts to keep surviving and progressing as a race...

True Ghost Stories is a collection of real and frightening paranormal accounts from real people. Each story is unique in its own personal experience and has been told to the author, Selinda Hart. Having worked as an investigator and as a researcher for the paranormal radio show “Tia Maria” she has brought together some of the best hauntings, accounts of paranormal mysteries, and true ghost stories in this collection.

The sixteen stories in this book include diverse paranormal phenomenon and unexplained mysteries set in different locations in the United States, and one compelling frightening story from Spain. As one former skeptic reports from his scary experience, “I was never a believer in the paranormal and I thought ghosts were simply a figment of someone's overactive imagination. I no longer scoff at people who claim to see ghosts. I never found out who or what was haunting that house. But I wasn't going to stay and find out.”

“The House off Greenville,” “Red Balloon,” “Ghost in the Bedroom,” and “Who’s been playing with my kids?” are real stories about events and paranormal activity that took place in the Dallas house where the author lived in as a single mom for over five years. Her children are grown now, but to this day they do not like talking about the strange activity and events that took place in that house.

If you like reading scary stories, paranormal mysteries, and unexplained phenomenon, then “True Ghost Stories” will leave you with chills. So snuggle up, get under the covers and get ready for some serious goosebumps!

Silver Medal Winner, European fiction - 2015 Independent Publisher Book Awards

A haunting historical thriller set in Britain's North Yorkshire Moors about isolation, superstition and persecution, The Haunting of Thores-Cross explores 18th century life in a picturesque but isolated village in the North Yorkshire Moors. But when a vulnerable young girl is ostracised within her community and accused of witchcraft, the descendants of her neighbours will suffer for centuries to come.

-This is the most well-researched, intense and spookiest book I've ever read- - Author Amy Queau

Likened by independent reviewers on Amazon to the BrontE sisters, Edgar Allen Poe, Barbara Erskine and Nathaniel Hawthorne, Karen Perkins' novels are filled with unflinching honesty and an acute understanding of human nature. She explores not only the depths of humanity, but the depths of human motivation behind the actions and pain people inflict upon each other, as well as the repercussions of these actions not only in the short term, but also the later generations who live with the implications of the past.

Emma Moorcroft is still grieving after a late miscarriage and moves to her dream house at Thruscross Reservoir with her husband, Dave. Both Emma and Dave hope that moving into their new home signifies a fresh start, but life is not that simple. Emma has nightmares about the reservoir and the drowned village that lies beneath the water, and is further disturbed by the sound of church bells - from a church that no longer exists.

Jennet is fifteen and lives in the isolated community of Thores-Cross, where life revolves about the sheep on which they depend. Following the sudden loss of both her parents, she is seduced by the local wool merchant, Richard Ramsgill. She becomes pregnant and is shunned not only by Ramsgill, but by the entire village. Lonely and embittered, Jennet's problems escalate, leading to tragic consequences which continue to have an effect through the centuries.

Emma becomes fixated on Jennet, neglecting herself, her beloved dogs and her husband to the point where her marriage may not survive. As Jennet and Emma's lives become further entwined, Emma's obsession deepens and she realises that the curse Jennet inflicted on the Ramsgill family over two hundred years ago is still claiming lives.

Emma is the only one who can stop Jennet killing again, but will her efforts be enough?

The Haunting of Thores-Cross was previously released asThores-Cross.
