The spookiest of specters inhabit this spine-tingling anthologycompiled by an acclaimed editor of the horror genrethat collects the most chilling ghost stories from the past 25 years. The human obsession with the mysteries of the afterlife is explored in these supernatural tales of haunted houses, lost souls, unexplained phenomena, and "good" neighbors. Neil Gaiman's "Closing Time" is a troubling tale recounted by an elderly man on a cold drizzly night in London while Joyce Carol Oates' "Haunted" is a chilling story of two young girls drawn to abandoned houses and what they find in one. Francis Wardwell is eager to inform readers that everything they think they know about ghosts is wrong in Peter Straub's "Hunger: An Introduction," and George R. R. Martin's "Remembering Melody" stresses the importance of keeping promisesno matter the consequences. Fans of a good ghost story will find this collection the ideal go-to for chills.
