Publisher's Summary

A ghost-hunter finds that the deserted house where he is spending the night is haunted - by a man who was literally scared to death.

Fantasy and horror writer Algernon Blackwood wrote more than 200 short stories and 12 novels, plus plays, an autobiography, and poetry. His stories feature intense emotions and a careful introduction of the supernatural aspect, with the ordinary gradually becoming mysterious and awe-inspiring.
