Summary (From the publisher):

Compiled by Charles Dickens, and counting Elizabeth Gaskell and Wilkie Collins among its contributors, The Haunted House is an ingenious tale of the supernatural with touches of pure Dickensian comedy.

When the narrator espies a deserted house from his railway carriage, he determines to take up residence. But local legend has it that this is a haunted house and no servant will dare enter employment. Refusing to be thwarted, he instead invites a number of acquaintances to join him, commissioning each with the task of routing out any supernatural inhabitants. As they gather together on twelfth night, each recounts his version of the ghostly activities...
