The Mammoth Book of Modern Ghost Stories Paperback
Edited by Peter Haining
Part of the Mammoth Books series
Over 25 short story masterpieces from writers such as Louis de Bernieres and Ian Rankin - modern literary tales to chill the blood.
This spine-chilling new anthology of 20th and 21st century tales by big name writers is in the best traditions of literary ghost stories.
It is just a little over a hundred years ago that the most famous literary ghost story, The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, was published and in the intervening years a great many other distinguished writers have tried their hand at this popular genre - some basing their fictional tales on real supernatural experiences of their own.

Review by Devatipan
It was rather hard work to finish this book - some of the stories are really not very good - but I'm glad I did. The last part - "Haunting Times: Tales of Unease" is easily the best.
