Publisher's Summary

Each of these 11 stories lures the unsuspecting listener into the ghostly world of the supernatural. Who has not been afraid of something? These gripping stories explore the possibilities – hair-raising, spine-chilling, blood-curdling. Here’s something for everyone who enjoys a good scare.

Ghosts range from an evil kitchen boy with a recipe for death to a tiresome invalid at the top of an apple tree. There’s Old Nick himself in one story, and a tale of second sight, and even a ghost story especially for dog-lovers! Includes 'Black Eyes', 'The Road It Went By', 'Who's Afraid', 'Mr. Hurrel's Tallboy', and 'The Yellow Ball', and more.
