Short stories have always been a sort of instant access into an author's brain, their soul and heart. A few pages can lift our lives into locations, people and experiences with a sweep of landscape, narration, feelings and emotions that is difficult to achieve elsewhere.In this series we try to offer up tried and trusted 'Top Tens' across many different themes and authors. But any anthology will immediately throw up the questions - Why that story? Why that author? The theme itself will form the boundaries for our stories which range from well-known classics, newly told, to stories that modern times have overlooked but perfectly exemplify the theme. Throughout the volume our authors whether of instant recognition or new to you are all leviathans of literature.Some you may disagree with but they will get you thinking; about our choices and about those you would have made. If this volume takes you on a path to discover more of these miniature masterpieces then we have all gained something.Some of our earliest thrills - and fears - dwell within us because of a ghost story heard in childhood. Whether fearful or giggling in delight it carries through with us till adult times. These dark, foreboding works may raise many a goosebump, an unexpected laugh, or, a tinge or two of real fear but then, in these authors hands that may be just the beginning.01 - The Top 10 - The Ghost Story2 - The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe3 - The Body Snatcher by Robert Louis Stevenson4 - The Signalman by Charles Dickens5 - The Phantom Rickshaw by Rudyard Kipling6 - The Horla by Guy de Maupassant7 - Strange Event in the Life of Schalken the Painter by Sheridan Le Fanu8 - The Empty House by Algernon Blackwood9 - Oh Whistle and I'll Come to You My Lad by M R James10 - The Eyes by Edith Wharton11 - The Case of Vincent Pyrwhit by Barry Pain
