Description - Haunted Houses by DK
Classic haunted house ghost stories curated by world-renowned filmmaker and horror genre authority John Landis.
This beautifully presented, highly collectible anthology features ghost stories that have enthralled, terrified and inspired readers decade after decade. Some are relatively well known; others are long-lost treasures, awaiting rediscovery.
The selection includes tales of terror by Bram Stoker, H. P. Lovecraft, and Percival Landon; studies of creeping dread by Edgar Allan Poe and Henry James; short, sharp shockers by Ambrose Bierce, M.R. James and Lafcadio Hearn; and comedic masterpieces by Oscar Wilde and Saki.
Mr. Landis' own introduction explores each tale's fascinating impact on the contemporary horror genre.
Step inside these ghost-ridden repositories of supernatural evil, if you dare...
"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."
H. P. Lovecraft
