Santrauka: The Best Ghost Stories by Charles Fowkes (Introduction), Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Edgar Allan Poe, J. Sheridan Le Fanu, Guy de Maupassant, M.R. James, O. Henry, W.W. Jacobs , Arthur Machen, Robert Smythe Hichens, Edward Lucas White, E.F. Benson, Algernon Blackwood, Saki, Walter de la Mare, Oliver Onions, E.M. Forster, Karen Blixen, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Graves, John Collier, William Sansom. In the selection of these tales, the widest possible interpretation has been given to the term "ghost story". It would have been disastrous if a magnificent vampire story like Carmilla, or tales dealing with ghouls (Pickman's model), a werewolf (Gabriel-Ernest) and Black Magic (Casting the runes), had been excluded for the sake of adhering to a category which is at best imprecise. Any supernatural element in a story made it eligible for inclusion - those finally selected are the best.
