A man’s mysterious “journey home” takes him back in time to familiar faces and places. A deserted ship transports a ghastly cargo in its sealed hold. A strange occupant of a newly rented house terrifies the tenants. Sixteen shocking tales--teeming with sinister figures, mystical spells, and nameless terrors--fill the pages of this chilling anthology. Long-neglected classics by Mary Wilkins-Freeman, Jerome K. Jerome, Lady Dilke, and other renowned writers include “The Undying Thing,” “The Serpent’s Head,” “The Drunkard’s Death,” “The Haunted Mill,” “The Page-Boy’s Ghost,” “Mysterious Maisie,” and ten other compelling tales of horror.
