Sir Walter Scott – Wandering Willie’s Tale
J. S. Le Fanu – Green Tea
Frederick Marryat – The Werewolf
Wilkie Collins – The Dream Woman
Lord Lytton – The Haunters And The Haunted
Bram Stoker – The Judges House
E. A. Poe – Ligeia
Charles Dickens – The Chimes
R. L. Stevenson – Markheim
Oscar Wilde – The Canterville Ghost
F. Marion Crawford – The Upper Berth
William Fryer Harvey – Sambo

Oliver Onions – The Beckoning Fair One
Saki – The Music On the Hill

Another of those samey post-War anthologies of classic ghost stories, this one sharing reprising several of the authors and even stories that John L. Hardie had used in 22 Strange Stories in 1946. You don’t need it, me neither, but i’d love a cover scan just the same.
