Does anyone know or could recommend me any Victorian Ghost Short Story books? I dont want a childrens book because I've already got on; but I've been looking on amazon.co.uk and the reviews on there are not very good.

You can just give me the names and authors no need for a link...

Thanks in advance!

You really cannot go wrong with M R James. I love his stories and they're not tediously long

I ALWAYS read him at Yule Smile
