Summary

Tales of spooks and spirits that have taught generations of readers what it means to be afraid of the dark—by authors from H. G. Wells to Willa Cather.   Before movies, television, and teams of high-tech “ghost hunters” running around darkened houses, there was only one sure-fire way to scare people: ghost stories.  Some of the greatest names in literature have expertly crafted haunting tales that put the reader in a whole other world in which every shadow holds a new fear—where the lines between the living and the dead are erased and the spirits are always willing.   In this collection of over forty ghastly ghost stories are works from celebrated names including Edgar Allan Poe, Saki (H. H. Munro), Mark Twain, Edith Wharton, Willa Cather, Washington Irving, Joseph Conrad, Robert Louis Stevenson, and many more. As frightening and unforgettable as they are fun, The Best Ghost Stories Ever Told are sure to keep you up night after night after dark and stormy night.

    He should never have gone into Kerry’s bedroom; but curiosity got the better of him. A weakness that had cost him dearly.
     
    When a young and elegant female colleague comes to rent a room in his flat, Stephen Williamson can’t wait to rummage through her lingerie and try them on. Kerry Carfax is oblivious to the fact her landlord secretly dresses in his tenants’ panties and bra and is unaware he is a closet sissy with fantasies of being humiliated by young, sexy women. His obsession extends to a spying on a long back catalogue of female tenants but he has never taken the plunge to ask any of them out or even to consider confessing his proclivities of cross-dressing or female BDSM. Will Stephen take the leap and realise his deep fantasies could become a reality in the presence of this young strong-willed woman and her friends? Will he ask her to be his Sissy Mistress or will he return to his life of watching and fantasising? Possibly he may have no choice. Read ‘Sissy Landlord’ and find out, now.
     
    A story of young domme female superiority, blackmail and forced feminisation approximately 6000 words long.

    A tale of otherworldly terror and haunted wind turbines from Wayne Kyle Spitzer, author of Flashback and The Witch Doctor ... 
    ... What on earth did you plan to do? 
    Dunn: Well, the only thing we could do, which was to right the boat and continue on—while doing our best to bail, of course. And that's when I first noticed it: way up there beyond the ridge; something moving, swinging, like the tip of a giant sword—only black against the sun—something which, after we'd scaled a nearby rockfall, turned out to be the blades of an industrial wind turbine—just one out of what seemed an endless array, spread out across the scrublands for as far as the eye could see, casting long shadows, like Cyclopean sentinels. 
    Detective Shaw: Cyclop—cyclopean—what is that? Is that Latin? 
    Dunn: Huge, Detective. Massive. 
    Detective Shaw: Right. And then, what? You returned to your boat? 
    Dunn: You know we didn't return to the boat. 
    Detective Shaw: Yes, I understand that, just as I understood they found a spiraled hole exactly one inch in diameter in the bottom of your canoe. But it's better for the record if I pretend I know nothing, okay? 
    Dunn: Okay. No, then we began walking, because we'd figured out where we were at—the Pyreridge Wind Farm just north of Edgerton, as you said. And we knew, also, that they gave tours there and even had a visitor's center; a center which might still be staffed even though it was extremely late in the day, and which would have a telephone. 
    Detective Shaw: A wise move. 
    Dunn: Yes, it was as good as any. Or so it seemed—until we came to the wind turbine with the white service truck parked at its base; and saw … where we saw … 
    Detective Shaw: Yes? 
    Dunn: You've seen the pictures, Detective. 
    Detective Shaw: But I need to pretend I have not. And I need to hear what you, personally, saw with your very own eyes. For the record, Dr. Dunn. Please. 
    Dunn: Where we saw a man, a service technician, by his clothes, hung by his neck from his own safety line … from the back of the wind turbine's nacelle. Just … just sort of swaying there, in the wind. A man who was missing one shoe. And who … 
    Detective Shaw: Go on … 
    Dunn: And who had no discernible face. Okay? (inaudible) He had no face. Isn't that good enough?
