Publisher's Summary

E.F. Benson (1867-1940) is probably best known today for his sparkling, comic Lucia novels. In his own day, it was his ghost stories which were his most popular works. This collection of 10 stories exemplifies Benson's fine literary style and his ability to create the most frightening of ghostly and macabre tales. They are: "Mrs Amworth"; "Naboth's Vineyard"; "At the Farmhouse"; "Negotium Perambulans"; "The Wishing Well"; "The Terror by Night"; "The Thing in the Hall"; "The Cat"; "The Sanctuary".

    What does Roy Macready bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    He has a ponderous slightly reedy voice, but this is perfect for these tales.

    Negotium Perambulans is particularly creepy

    Choice and consequence is a recurring theme in E. F. Benson's supernatural stories.
