Originally published as Mist and Other Stories.
Richmal Crompton published Mist and Other Ghost Stories in 1928. Never reprinted and exceptionally scarce, these wide-ranging and compelling suspense stories for adults are atmospherically charged with murder, moonshine and murkiness. They are often rooted in domesticity or in someone’s oppressive fascination with an old house or garden. The ghosts are perhaps surprisingly grisly.
Contains thirteen stories: 'The Bronze Statuette', 'Strange', 'The Spanish Comb', 'Marlowes', 'Rosalind', 'The House Behind the Wood', 'Harry Lorimer', 'The Little Girl', 'The Haunting of Greenways', 'The Oak Tree', 'Hands', 'The Sisters', 'Mist'.
