Waterstones Says

One of the great pracitioners of the British ghost story, Benson's deeply disquieting miniatures transform the everyday and banal into totems of sheer terror and this collection features some of her very finest pieces.

Sherlock star Mark Gatiss selects and introduces chilling tales by the unsung master of the classic ghost story - E.F. Benson.

There's nothing sinister about a London bus. Nothing supernatural could occur on a busy Tube platform. There's nothing terrifying about a little caterpillar. And a telephone, what could be scary about that? Don't be frightened of the dark corners of your room. Don't be alarmed by a sudden, inexplicable chill. There's no need for a ticking clock, a limping footstep, or a knock at the door to start you trembling. There's nothing to be scared of. Nothing at all.

“Ghost Stories - or an historical entertainment?”


When I was first asked to read E.F.Benson’s Ghost Stories, I was a little concerned as I have got a very vivid imagination, and resolved to read them during daylight hours. I need not have worried. That is no... More
