Anyway, scary books. What about Barbara Erskine's Midnight Is A Lonely Place - I can't read that at night, it keeps me awake. About a writer who moves to a cottage by the sea in the middle of winter and it turns out to be haunted, big time.
Or Bram Stoker, Dracula.
I liked that one of Erskine. Lots of things that go bump in the night if I recall. Dumas wrote a book of ghost stories but I've not yet got my hands on it. I think Wharton wrote some ghost stories as well, I'll have to look up the title when I'm home. It's in the big pile somewhere.
