'No one chills the blood like Susan Hill' Daily Telegraph From the horrifying secret of Eel Marsh House in The Woman in Black to the supernatural terror unleashed by spiteful Leonora van Vorst in Dolly and the deadly danger posed by Professor Parmitter's painting of Venice in The Man in the Picture, Susan Hill's ghost stories never fail to raise the hairs on the back of your neck and keep you turning the pages long past midnight. Here, collected together for the first time - and also including the bestselling Printers Devil Court and The Small Hand - are all of Susan Hill's spinechilling stories of murder, magic and mayhem. Read on if you dare ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Susan Hill's ghost stories: 'Susan Hill is the grande dame of English supernatural fiction * Financial Times *
Part of the fear she conjures up is a sense that this could happen to anyone * Scotsman *
An assuredly chilling ghost story -- Sadie Jones * Guardian *
Possesses a timeless austerity ... the very simplicity of Hill's unveiling of her story in Dolly imposes an awful inevitability on the action ... suitably wintry atmospheric storytelling. * Spectator *
As accomplished and effective as the rest, not tired in the least even if there is a cunning formula at work ... Best read at night for full effect * Independent *
Perfectly creepy ... a real chiller * Saga *
Susan Hill is the queen of the traditional ghost story and this one has a beautifully crafted creepiness ... Superb and scary * The Times *
She is incontrovertibly, unarguably the best in the field -- Barry Forshaw * Independent *
Everything about this book is old-fashioned in the nicest possible way. The presentation is gorgeous, reminiscent of an Edwardian school prize, and Susan Hill's superb ghost stories are already classics ... Hill's descriptions are short but wonderfully vivid, and she knows exactly how to make the flesh creep. More than this, she knows the emotions that are powerful enough to linger after death. -- Kate Saunders * The Times *
The high priestess of spine-tingling supernatural fiction, Susan Hill is one of those writers who always grips and entertains. * Emerald Street *
An excellent collection * Sydney Morning Herald *
