Three great tales of meetings with ghosts, and perhaps more than ghosts: "The Vacant Lot" by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman; "On the Brighton Road" by Richard Middleton; and "Sister Johanna" by Amelia B. Edwards.
Here are two terrifying and sobering stories of ghosts who will stop at nothing. In Henry James' "The Romance of Certain Old Clothes", a woman's envy of her dead sister threatens to destroy her. In "Lost Hearts", three children learn that a classical scholar's love of the past has led him into a terrible and bloody delusion.
