Gathering together deliciously chilling tales from the three highly acclaimed
volumes of Virago ghost stories, this collection features stories by A. S.
Byatt, Angela Carter, Charlotte Bronte, Antonia Fraser, Penelope Lively, Ruth
Rendell, Edith Wharton, and many more. Here lost loves, past enmities, and
unwanted memories mingle with the inexplicable as unquiet souls return to repay
kindnesses, settle scores, and haunt the imagination. All of the writers
demonstrate a subtle power to delight and chill at the same time as they explore
the ghostly margins of the supernatural.
