Haunted House Boxset! GRAB ALL FOUR Haunted House Stories in one volume. Here's what you get: 1. The Haunting of Dutton House Clara Edwards's son is a brute of a boy. His body grew massive and strong, while his mind remains that of a young child. Cretin and imbecile are the words used to describe Alfred Edwards. So, Clara keeps him hidden away from public scorn. His physical strength continues to develop, until one day, he unwittingly commits murder. He doesn't mean to-he just needs his mother's screaming to stop. More than a century later, Amber's family moves into the Edwards's old home. Immediately, disturbing things occur. When Amber's son begins to draw mindlessly on the walls and his eyes go blank, Amber fears someone's spirit is hovering. Someone tortured and suffering unbearable grief. Against Amber's will, the past is thrust upon her, and if she can't find a way to resolve it, she and her family will be the next victims... 2. The Haunting of Faulkner House December-early 1800s. She came in the night...Her grisly, inexplicable acts of murder thrust Faulkner House into heinous fame. More than a century later, residents refuse to inhabit the place, claiming evil lurks within. Over the years, a few brave souls have tried, but they paid dearly for their foolishness. When young widow Fannie Robson moves to Bledevere to escape her grief, she is destitute. The only place she can afford is Faulkner House. Against vehement warnings and icy outcries, she moves in. She's not there twenty-four hours before the horrifying haunting begins. Blood runs, things shatter, items disappear, doors refuse to open... Fannie tries to explain it all away. And then, a frantic hope surges through her. If there truly are ghosts and spirits, why can't she make contact with her dead husband? Fannie's desperation forces her into a show-down with seemingly no way to win. She has grossly underestimated the evil forces fighting her. Is her only way out death? 3. The Haunting of Bennet House Prenna Johnson chases after haunted sightings with pure delight. But when she and her boyfriend, Gavin, stumble on Bennet House, she is in over her head. Way over her head. There have been rumors, of course. That in the 1800's, a famous painter living in Bennet House murdered his children's governess. But nothing was proven. So, it's just a rumor. Only it isn't. The murdered governess hasn't rested for over a century. She decides that Prenna is the human who will provide vengeance. What starts out as an eerie investigation, quickly goes wrong. When the governess takes over Prenna's body, all control is lost. Prenna is at the mercy of a murdered woman who wants nothing more than her bitter revenge. 4. The Haunting of Slater House Leeches-masses of them. Slithering around in jars, just waiting for Doctor Mason's use. The good doctor uses them to treat everything from headaches to consumption. He also "purifies" his own body by placing the creatures regularly all over his own chest to suck out any bad blood. Which causes no problems, until he attaches them to four weak, sickly children. Centuries later, Pamela Sharp leads a group of students to Slater House for research. When leeches squirm under the cheese on their pizza, when blotches of blood appear and disappear on their bedroom rugs, when one of the students takes on a ghastly glow, Pamela knows that something is horrendously wrong. When the truth is revealed, she wonders if any of them will survive...

Ashley Stassler is not your average artist. He has been wildly praised for a series of bronze sculptures that group families together, depicting them in moments of excruciating physical and emotional pain--but the art world has no clue as to how he creates such authentic, gruesome, seemingly tortured human representations. He assigns each family a number, and now he's up to number nine. What's in store for family #9? Cruelty and savagery that you can't even imagine . . . The Bone Parade introduces a villain who is as methodical, calculating, and detached as any found in the best fiction. It's gripping. It's chilling. You might be too afraid to read on, but you'll never be able to tear your eyes away.

Hill House adalah rumah terpencil yang ganjil nan angker. Ukiran dan lukisan di dalamnya seolah-olah mengamatimu ke mana pun kau pergi, pintu-pintu selalu tertutup sendiri, dan kau selalu merasakan dingin yang menggigit meski duduk di dekat perapian. Setiap malam, terdengar suara langkah kaki di koridor, dan ketukan-ketukan kasar di pintu, padahal ketika diperiksa, tidak ada siapa-siapa. Tidak ada orang waras yang sudi tinggal di sana… Namun rumor-rumor seram Hill House malah menarik perhatian Dr. Montague, seorang akademisi yang ingin melakukan penelitian tentang aktifitas-aktifitas supernatural. Dia pun mengundang tiga orang asisten, Eleanor, Theodora, dan Luke, untuk tinggal di Hill House selama musim panas. Awalnya gangguan-gangguan makhluk halus yang mereka alami masih bisa ditolerir, tapi ketika Eleanor mulai mendengar suara-suara tanpa wujud yang membisikkan namanya, dan coretan cat merah di dinding yang memintanya pulang, keadaan mulai di luar kendali. Dr. Montague harus bertindak cepat jika tidak ingin jatuh korban nyawa. The Haunting of Hill House dianggap sebagai salah satu kisah horor terbaik abad ke-20. Novel ini telah dua kali diadaptasi menjadi film layar lebar, yakni tahun 1963 dan 1999. Versi tahun 1999 dibintangi oleh Liam Neeson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Owen Wilson, dan Lili Taylor.

It was a job any kid would kill for: to play a role in the Historical Society's Haunted House Halloween fundraising event. Ellen Streater was thrilled to play Joan of Arc, burning at the stake. It was for a good cause—to benefit the eerie old Clayton House, soon to reopen as a museum. They said the house was haunted. Ellen didn't believe it—until she felt a strange, icy feeling when she touched the beautiful Fairylustre bowl. Then she saw the ghost in the mirror—a beautiful phantom who beckoned her into a nightmare beyond her wildest dreams. "Entertaining and appealing, with lively and believable young people and a personable ghost." —School Library Journal
