To believe, in that sense, is a conscious act of the intellect, and it is in the warm darkness of the prenatal fluid far below our conscious reason that the faculty dwells with which we apprehend ghosts.

Edith Wharton, known for her keen observations of an emotionally stifling upper-class social world, was so afraid of ghosts that for many years she couldnt even sleep in a room with a book containing a ghost story. As horror scholar Jack Sullivan writes, It is this sharply felt sensation of supernatural dread filtered through a skeptical sensibility that made Wharton a master of the ghost story. This collection contains 11 of her elegant, chilling tales, including Afterword, The Triumph of Night, and Pomegranate Seed, plus Whartons 1937 preface and an autobiographical postscript.
