My brand new anthology of ghost hunter fiction, Those Who Haunt Ghosts: A Century of Ghost Hunter Fiction, is now available at Barnes & Nobel for under $20. (You get free shipping with an order of $25 dollars or more.) Click here to find it.
It should also be available directly from Amazon in a few days. There’s been some trouble with connections. It’s listed there, but as of now, the only way to buy it “from Amazon” is through another vendor that they list. Coachwhip Publications and I worked hard to keep the price of the hefty book below $20, and the vendors named there charge more than that. If you prefer Amazon to Barnes & Noble, I suggest waiting a while longer to save a few bucks.
Those Who Haunt Ghosts spotlights a curious branch of literary ghost stories from the heyday of that genre, the mid-1800s to the early 1900s. Along with an Introduction and footnotes by myself, the 28 short stories and novellas include:
Edward Bulwer-Lytton – the full version of “The Haunted and the Haunters; or, The House and the Brain” (1859)
Henry James – “The Ghostly Rental” (1876)
J. H. Riddell – “The Open Door” (1882)
Ambrose Bierce – “A Fruitless Assignment” (1888)
B.M. Croker – “Number Ninety” (1895)
Ralph Adams Cram – “No. 252 Rue M. le Prince” (1895)
H.G. Wells – “The Red Room” (1896)
Arthur Conan Doyle – “The Brown Hand” (1899)
Algernon Blackwood – “The Woman’s Ghost Story” (1907)
Rudyard Kipling – “The House Surgeon” (1909)
W.W. Jacobs – “’The Toll-House’” (1909)
C. Ashton Smith – “The Ghost of Mohammed Din” (1910)
Sax Rohmer – “The Haunting of Low Fennel” (1920)
H.P. Lovecraft – “The Shunned House” (1928)
I encourage you to go ahead and order it from Barnes & Nobel, since it makes an appropriately ghostly holiday gift! Perhaps for yourself!
