There is an inexplicable pull that we feel towards stories about horror and mystery. The fear of the unknown, coupled with the thirst to know the ‘truth’, keeps us turning page after page. This is a collection of mysterious horror stories, written by masters of the genre, that will make you hold your breath at every turn and gasp with shock at every twist. From a duel gone horribly wrong, and a lodger who conducts mysterious experiments in the dead of night; to a fiendish cat who is out for revenge, and a waxwork that eerily seems alive-these tales will make your hair stand on end.
