Horror & ghost stories
With a new introduction by Kelly Link In these powerful and elegant tales, Edith Wharton evokes moods of disquiet and darkness within her own era. In icy new England a fearsome double foreshadows the fate of a rich young man; a married farmer is bewitched by a dead girl; a ghostly bell saves a woman's reputation. Brittany conjures ancient cruelties, Dorset witnesses a retrospective haunting and a New York club cushions an elderly aesthete as he tells of the ghastly eyes haunting his nights.

Stories include: The Lady's Maid's Bell; The Eyes; Afterward; Kerfol; The Triumph of Night: Miss Mary Pask; Bewitched; Mr Jones; Pomegranate Seed; The Looking Glass; All Souls' Also includes an Introduction and Autobiographical Postscript by the author.

Her first novel, The Valley of Decision, was published in 1902, and by 1913 she was writing at least one book a year.
