2. The Witch of Prague & Other Stories by F. Marion Crawford

This collection includes all the classic chillers from this 19th century writer. The title tale, The Witch of Prague, is an occult love story about a witch whose source of power is a gift for hypnosis and a mysterious wanderer who she will stop at nothing to posses. If vampires are more your speed, For the Blood is the Life is the haunting story of a lonely female vampire who lives in a desolate tower in Italy. For something a little more ghostly, try The Screaming Skull, a supernatural tale of murder and revenge.
