ON THE JACKET FLAPS -
Lock your doors and get ready for some good, scary fun. Here are ten ghost stories--written by an expert in the art of the strange, the spooky and the suspenseful--that will give you hours of wonderful, shivery reading along with some chuckles to help relieve the tension. Among the tales are:
Footsteps Invisible--Sir Andrew Carraden was running out of places to hide. Years ago he had broken into an Egyptian tomb and violated an ancient curse. Now something was following him, something so dreadful that the very thought of it filled him with terror--and it was getting closer and closer every minute!
Mr. Milton's Gift--Homer's troubles began when he walked into the strangest little gift shop he'd ever seen. All he had wanted was a gift for his wife, but the odd little proprietor with the glowing yellow eyes had sold him quite a different sort of gift...the gift of verse. Now, no matter what Homer said, it came out in rhyme and he couldn't stop it!
The Rose-Crystal Bell--"When a bell like this one is rung," said the young Chinese, "a bell carved from a single piece of rose crystal, any dead within sound of it will rise and live again." Edith Williams and her husband laughed at this story when they bought the tiny bell. But when their son was killed in an auto accident, Edith decided to test the bell's powers--a test with results more frightening than her worst nightmares.
You'll find seven other stories in Ghosts and More Ghosts, each filled with spine-tingling excitement and suspense. Their author, Robert Arthur, was greatly interested in ghosts and magic. In fact, he once lived in a mysterious old house where bats could fly around his head as he typed--just the right setting for an author of such spooky tales!
