The Ghost Quartet: Original Stories by Brian Lumley, Orson Scott Card, Marvin Kaye and Tanith Lee
Everyone knows ghosts don't exist, right? So it should be no problem to read these four original short novels in the evening, in the gathering gloom, as your home creaks and shifts around you.
Begin with Brian Lumley, a grand master of horror and author of the popular Necroscope series, as he opens the collection with the tense The Place of Waiting. The moors of Devon, England, are home to many ghosts but none as fearsome as the red-eyed specter that refuses to accept his death.
What was that noise? Nothing, surely, just the wind.
Are you as brave as you were when you began? Then continue with Orson Scott Card as he puts a new spin on one of literature's most famous ghosts in Hamlet's Father. What if the former king of Denmark was not killed by his treacherous brother for his his crown, but by someone else, as punishment for the darkest of crimes? Would his troubled son still seek revenge?
There it is again, louder now... it must be the cat...
The patrons of an Edinburgh tavern are introduced to a beverage with an unusual history in The Haunted Single Malt by Marvin Kaye, a clever and spooky tale about ghost stories and the people who love them.
What's that you say? You don't have a cat?
Tanith Lee offers Strindberg's Ghost Sonata, a chilling tale set in an alternate Russia. When a poor man is rescued from certain death by hospitable strangers, he discovers that he is not a guest in their haunted tenement building -- he is a prisoner destined to become a sacrifice.
