Ghost Stories Of Henry James (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)

Wordsworth Editions Ltd
Show/hide full description or See full details
With an Introduction and Notes by Martin Scofield, University of Kent at Canterbury Henry James was arguably the greatest practitioner of what has been called the psychological ghost story. His stories explore the region which lies between the supernatural or straightforwardly marvellous and the darker areas of the human psyche. This edition includes all ten of his ghost stories, and as such is the fullest collection currently available. The stories range widely in tone and type. They include 'The Jolly Corner', a compelling story of psychological doubling; 'Owen Wingrave', which is also a subtle parable of military tradition; 'The Friends of the Friends', a strange story of uncanny love; and 'The Private Life', which finds a shrewd, high comedy in its ghostly theme. The volume also includes James's great novella The Turn of the Screw , perhaps the most ambiguous and disturbing ghost story ever written.

Claim Your FREE Bonuses After the Conclusion!

What would you do if you ever encountered a spirit or otherworldly entity? Do you think you would flee the scene, screaming as you put as much distance between you and the unknown? Or would you try your hardest to communicate with the entity? The idea of ghosts and spirits is not a new concept. Records of ghosts have been reported since the beginnings of civilization as we know it. But nothing prepares you for the moment you eventually come face to face with a paranormal entity. This book covers many houses, public places and forests that are said to be the homes of the supernatural. In these places, the spirits are not shy in the presence of the living. Often they will whisper in a person’s ear or touch the small of their back with their unseen, freezing fingertips. These spirits recollect fragments of their previous life—moments in which they too had been alive and well. Each haunted location in our world has a unique background—a context in which to approach each marvelously haunted place. Sometimes the world is cruel and will steal a young life, or make a person endure a brutal and painful death. It is important to understand why certain spirits we encounter in specific places may seem angry or upset, and we must interact with them in a manner that reflects our understanding of the life they had lived...

The Oxford Book of Victorian Ghost Stories

Oxford University Press
Show/hide full description or See full details
The Victorians excelled at telling ghost stories. In an age of rapid scientific progress, the idea of a vindictive past able to reach out and violate the present held a special potential for terror. Throughout the nineteenth century, fictional ghost stories developed in parallel with the more general Victorian fascination with death and what lay beyond it. Though they were as much a part of the cultural and literary fabric of the age as imperial confidence, the best of the stories still retain their original power to surprise and unsettle.

In Victorian Ghost Stories, the editors map out the development of the ghost story from 1850 to the early years of the twentieth century and demonstrate the importance of this form of short fiction in Victorian popular culture. As well as reprinting stories by supernatural specialists such as J. S. Le Fanu and M. R. James, this selection emphasizes the key role played by women writers--including Elizabeth Gaskell, Rhoda Broughton, and Charlotte Riddell--and offers one or two genuine rarities. Other writers represented include Charles Dickens, Henry James, Wilkie Collins, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and R. L. Stevenson. There is also a fascinating Introduction and a chronological list of ghost story collections from 1850 to 1910.

The ghost story is perhaps the oldest of all the supernatural literary genres and has captured the imagination of almost every writer to put pen to the page. Here, Edgar Award-winning editor Otto Penzler has followed his keen sense of the supernatural to collect the most chilling and uncanny tales in the canon. These spectral stories span more than a hundred years, from modern-day horrors by Joyce Carol Oates, Chet Williamson and Andrew Klavan, to pulp yarns from August Derleth, Greye La Spina, and M. L. Humphreys, to the atmospheric Victorian tales of Rudyard Kipling, Edith Wharton, and H. P. Lovecraft, not to mention modern works by the likes of Donald E. Westlake and Isaac Asimov that are already classics. Some of these stories have haunted the canon for a century, while others are making their first ghoulish appearance  in book form.  Whether you prefer possessive poltergeists, awful apparitions, or friendly phantoms, these stories are guaranteed to thrill you, tingle the spine, or tickle the funny bone, and keep you turning the pages with fearful delight.

Including such classics as “The Monkey’s Paw” and “The Open Window” and eerie vintage illustrations, and also featuring haunted mansions, midnight frights, lovers from beyond the grave, rapping, tapping, wailing shades, and ghosts, ghouls, and specters galore!

Ghost Girl: The True Story of a Child in Desperate Peril-and a Teacher Who Saved Her

William Morrow Paperbacks
Show/hide full description or See full details

From the bestselling author of One Child comes this compelling, true story of a child in desperate peril and the teacher who saved her despite the odds.

Jadie never spoke. She never laughed, or cried, or uttered any sound. Despite efforts to reach her, Jadie remained locked in her own troubled world…until one remarkable teacher persuaded her to break her self-imposed silence.

Nothing in all of Torey Hayden's experience could have prepared her for the shock of what Jadie told her—a story too horrendous for Torey's professional colleagues to acknowledge. Yet a little girl was living in a nightmare, and Torey Hayden responded in the only way she knew how—with courage, compassion, and dedication—demonstrating once again the tremendous power of love and the resilience of the human spirit.

“An amazing story.”—Washington Post
