Cold Harbour, by Francis Brett Young/Sinister House, by Leland Hall
Hippocampus Press, 2008
If you like old-fashioned ghost stories big on atmosphere, I've got two you might want to try. These books, Cold Harbour, by Francis Brett Young and Sinister House, by Leland Hall, are together in one volume, as part of the Lovecraft's Library series, published by Hippocampus Press. It's the perfect pair of reads for a dark and stormy night -- two haunted house stories that are admittedly on the tame side for modern horror readers, but just what the doctor ordered if you're into older (1924, 1919), less gore-driven type of spookiness. You'll find the review here.
