1 Cuddon, J. A. The Penguin Book of Ghost Stories
185471001X / 9781854710017; The ghost story is one of the oldest forms of tale, in fact and fiction, and is more or less universal. In its modern fictional form it developed early in the nineteenth century in the work of Kleist and Hoffman and thereafter burgeoned in the hands of many British, American and European writers. This anthology contains thirty-three stories representing the last 180 years. Besides the frightening and bloodcurdling, there are also the witty and subtle, poignant and exuberant, plus those that leave a strange and sinister feeling and unease and fear. A wonderfuly feast! The binding has the same graphics as the jacket. The remainder mark is a small dot on the bottom of the book. 512 pages, Stories include "The Inexperienced Ghost" (H. G. Wells) , " One Who Saw" (A. M. Burrage) , " Come and Get Me" (Elizabeth Walter) , "Afterward" (Edith Wharton) , " Wandering Willie's Tale" (Walter Scott) and so forth. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

2 Durkee, Lee Rides of the Midway: a Novel
039304971X / 9780393049718; Heartbreaking and wickedly funny, Rides of the Midway whirls through the manic Mississippi nights of haunted teenager Noel Weatherspoon. Weatherspoon is many things: An unwitting clairvoyant, an extreme asthma sufferer, a ghost-seeing insomniac, an endearing dopehead, a wanna-be erotic photographer, a would-be baseball star, a lamentable virgin, and a suspected, somnambulent mercy-killer. Spinning in ten directions at once by his passions and missteps, he finds himself haunted by ghosts both real and imagined: By the specter of the boy he knocked into oblivion while sliding home in a Little League game, and by the spirit of his father, a POW who disappeared in Vietnam. The binding is deep green and black in a moire pattern. The jacket has a scuff mark on the back. 316 pages. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

4 Michael, Ib Prince
0374237239 / 9780374237233; It is 1912 at a provincial Danish seaside hotel. 12-year-old Malte, a charity case from the city, revels in the freedom of summer, even as he weathers the dramas in his small world: Condescending or friendly adults, a pregnant hotel maid, and a runaway rogue. One day Malte discovers a coffin that has drifted ashore. No one claims the handsome young sailor inside. But the ancient crone living all alone in the amber castle seems to be hiding something. Soon Malte is absorbed in the sailor's tragic love story and dramatic death, and their fates become dangerously intertwined. 308 pages, no marks or tears. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
