A Collection of Ghost Stories

Audrey Niffenegger, international best-selling author of The Time Traveler's Wife, invites you to creep through haunted houses and commune with the undead in this anthology of all things ghostly


Haunted houses, spectral chills, and of course, the odd cat…

In this volume, Audrey Niffenegger, bestselling author of The Time Traveler’s Wife, has brought together her selection of the very creepiest, weirdest and wittiest ghost stories around.

Scare yourself silly with old favourites by Edgar Allan Poe and M. R. James. Entertain the unnerving with tales from Neil Gaiman, Kelly Link and Audrey Niffenegger herself. And as bedtime nears, allay your fears with funny new writing from Amy Giacalone and the classic wit of Saki.

When the nights draw in and the fire burns low, enjoy the eeriness, the dread and the comedy of all things ghostly.

Praise for Ghostly

Here lies the magic of the genre; it allows you to dip your toe into an adrenaline-pumping world, while in the safety of your own armchair... It's Niffenegger's eclectic edit of stories from the past 200 years that really left us reeling


There are shivers aplenty in this collection of ghostly tales by a variety of authors, chosen by Niffenegger, from the eerie and uncanny to the delightfully odd. Each story, creepy as it is, has a sense of loss and curtailment at its heart


The action takes place in a classic creepy house - a motif that also appears in Audrey Niffenegger's short story "Secret Life With Cats", a standout in Ghostly, an anthology of tales intended to cause shudders


Niffenegger is a prolific graphic novelist and her monochrome illustrations… really bring the stories to life

A beautiful hardback, the sort of thing you’ll keep for years. Lucky really, as you’ll probably only be able to manage a couple of stories per year. For example, Edith Wharton’s 1931 entry, The Pomegranate Seed, is heart-stopping
