This House is HauntedJohn Boyne
Written in Dickensian prose, This House Is Haunted is a striking homage to the classic nineteenth-century ghost story. Set in Norfolk in 1867, Eliza Caine responds to an ad for a governess position at Gaudlin Hall. When she arrives at the hall, shaken by an unsettling disturbance that occurred during her travels, she is greeted by the two children now in her care, Isabella and Eustace. There is no adult present to represent her mysterious employer, and the children offer no explanation. Later that night in her room, another terrifying experience further reinforces the sense that something is very wrong. From the moment Eliza rises the following morning, her every step seems dogged by a malign presence that lives within Gaudlin’s walls. Eliza realizes that if she and the children are to survive its violent attentions, she must first uncover the hall’s long-buried secrets and confront the demons of its past. Clever, captivating, and witty, This House Is Haunted is pure entertainment with a catch.

Dead Men's BootsMike Carey
Author of The Girl With All the Gifts Mike Carey presents the third book in his hip supernatural thriller series featuring freelance exorcist Felix Castor. You might think that helping a friend's widow to stop a lawyer from stealing her husband's corpse would be the strangest thing on your To Do list. But life is rarely that simple for Felix Castor. A brutal murder in the heart of London bears all the hallmarks of a long-dead American serial killer, and it takes more good sense than Castor possesses not to get involved. He's also fighting a legal battle over the body -- if not the soul -- of his possessed friend, Rafi, and can't shake the feeling that his three problems might be related. With the help of the succubus Juliet and paranoid zombie data-fence Nicky Heath, Castor just might have a chance of fitting the pieces together before someone drops him down an elevator shaft or rips his throat out. Or not. . .
Antique DustRobert Westall
‘Dealers are undertakers of a sort. When a man dies, the undertaker comes for the body, and the dealer comes for the rest. I deal in dead men’s clocks, pipes and swords. Passing through my hands, they give off joy, loneliness, fear . . . I have known more evil in a set of false teeth than in any so-called haunted house in England.’ So speaks Geoff Ashden, a regular guy trying to make an honest living as an antique dealer, but who has an uncanny knack for finding cursed objects and haunted places: a sinister Georgian clock carved with obscene and Satanic designs, a hideous doll with deadly powers, a pair of old spectacles that let their wearer see a little too clearly, an ugly house with a terrifying secret, a church full of graffiti scrawled in decomposing human flesh. In this collection, award-winning children’s author Robert Westall delivers a set of chilling tales for adults and proves himself, as Orrin Grey writes in the new introduction to this edition, ‘an obvious successor to that godfather of the English ghost story, M.R. James .’ ‘[C]reepy . . . develops a sense of palpable evil . . . well worth the time of readers who prefer slyly civilized British ghost-stories’ – Kirkus Reviews ‘Fiendishly clever, spine-tingling short fiction’ – Publishers Weekly ‘Marvelous M. R. Jamesian-style ghost stories’ – Michael Dirda, Washington Post

The Picture of Dorian GrayOscar Wilde
This carefully crafted ebook: “The Picture of Dorian Gray (The Original 1890 Uncensored Edition + The Expanded and Revised 1891 Edition)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Picture of Dorian Gray, the only novel by Oscar Wilde, was first published in 1890. A substantially revised and expanded edition was published in April 1891. For the new edition, Wilde revised the content of the novel's existing chapters, divided the final chapter into two chapters, and created six entirely new additional chapters. Whereas the original edition of the novel contains 13 chapters, the revised edition of the novel contains 20 chapters. The 1891 version was expanded from 13 to 20 chapters, but also toned down, particularly in some of its overt homoerotic aspects. Also, chapters 3, 5, and 15 to 18 are entirely new in the 1891 version, and chapter 13 from the first edition is split in two (becoming chapters 19 and 20). The novel tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Dorian is selected for his remarkable physical beauty, and Basil becomes strongly infatuated with Dorian, believing that his beauty is responsible for a new mode of art. The Picture of Dorian Gray is considered one of the last works of classic gothic horror fiction with a strong Faustian theme. It deals with the artistic movement of the decadents, and homosexuality, both of which caused some controversy when the book was first published. However, in modern times, the book has been referred to as "one of the modern classics of Western literature”. Oscar Wills Wilde (1854 – 1900) was an Irish writer and poet. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Today he is remembered for his epigrams, his only novel (The Picture of Dorian Gray), his plays, and the circumstances of his imprisonment and early death.

Algernon Blackwood (1869-1951) was an English short story writer and novelist, one of the most prolific writers of ghost stories in the history of the genre. He was also a journalist and a broadcasting narrator. S. T. Joshi has stated that “his work is more consistently meritorious than any weird writer’s except Dunsany’s.” Though Blackwood wrote a number of horror stories, his most typical work seeks less to frighten than to induce a sense of awe.
The Night StrangersChris Bohjalian
From the bestselling author of The Double Bind , Skeletons at the Feast , and Secrets of Eden , comes a riveting and dramatic ghost story. In a dusty corner of a basement in a rambling Victorian house in northern New Hampshire, a door has long been sealed shut with 39 six-inch-long carriage bolts. The home's new owners are Chip and Emily Linton and their twin ten-year-old daughters. Together they hope to rebuild their lives there after Chip, an airline pilot, has to ditch his 70-seat regional jet in Lake Champlain after double engine failure. Unlike the Miracle on the Hudson, however, most of the passengers aboard Flight 1611 die on impact or drown. The body count? Thirty-nine – a coincidence not lost on Chip when he discovers the number of bolts in that basement door. Meanwhile, Emily finds herself wondering about the women in this sparsely populated White Mountain village – self-proclaimed herbalists – and their interest in her fifth-grade daughters. Are the women mad? Or is it her husband, in the wake of the tragedy, whose grip on sanity has become desperately tenuous? The result is a poignant and powerful ghost story with all the hallmarks readers have come to expect from bestselling novelist Chris Bohjalian: a palpable sense of place, an unerring sense of the demons that drive us, and characters we care about deeply. The difference this time? Some of those characters are dead.

Since that dreadful day he's done only one significant thing.

That night, at precisely 1:00 a.m., a little boy shows up in the garden. He's holding onto the fence, looking inside at the flowers, and sobbing with such intensity, it pierces the gloom around Conrad's heart. Conrad goes outside to help, but by the time he reaches the garden, the boy is gone. The same thing happens the next night. On the third night, when the boy reappears, a shocking event sends Conrad on a crazy quest that ultimately rocks the small town where he lives and shows him there's a lot about life and death he hasn't understood.

Ghost whisperer Winter Whitethorne finds it easier to get along with the dead than the living. She’s perfected invisibility spells so she can ‘ghost’ those she doesn’t like. Haunted by spirits who refuse to cross over, she struggles to act “normal” and not give in to the bad luck she believes clings to her as deftly as her ghostly hitchhikers. When her boyfriend, Ronan, is attacked three days before Yule, leaving him in a magickal coma, she discovers her destiny is far bigger than she ever imagined. Not only can she reach across the veil and communicate with the dead, she has the ability to raise them and change the very fabric of the world. There’s no invisibility spell that’s going to solve that problem. With her ghost cat familiar, Shade, as well as Persephone, a snarky new spirit guide who has a thing for hippie clothes, Winter embarks on a journey to return Ronan’s spirit to his body and stop a magickal disaster prophesied to take place on Yule. But does she have a ghost of a chance to save her one true love and fix magick when she, too, ends up on the other side of the veil? Clean read: no graphic violence, sex, or strong language.

The Extra Large MediumHelen Slavin
“Complete with chatty prose, the requisite tea shop, and spooky clues, Slavin’s delightful novel takes the reader happily all the way to the ever after” ( Booklist ). Annie Colville can see—and converse with—dead people. She’s had this gift since she was a child, though “gift” may be overstating it since most of what they have to tell her is quite petty and tedious. But when her husband disappears suddenly, he does not come to visit her. So does that mean Evan is still alive? During her long wait to discover what happened to Evan, Annie searches through her mother’s vast collection of lovers for the other missing man in her life—her father—and struggles with the questions her gift asks of her. Who is the mysterious girl who sits by the lake? What happened to the lost woman whose sister has never stopped searching for her? And why are so many of the dead voices called Jim? Quirky, irreverent, moving, and a little bit spooky, this novel by “a highly original talent” will charm you completely—even as it’s raising the hairs on the back of your neck (Beryl Bainbridge, author of An Awfully Big Adventure ). “Lightheartedly macabre . . . Slavin has something more subversive up her sleeve than mere entertainment: in conjuring a world of ghosts as likely to bore as to scare her heroine to death, she wickedly skewers a society whose obsession with the afterlife shortchanges life itself.” — The New York Times “Annie endears herself to the reader . . . She embodies a genuine purity of heart.” — Publishers Weekly
