The Power of Darkness (Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)

The Power of Darkness: Tales of Terror (Mystery & Supernatural) - E. Nesbit I've never read any of Edith Nesbit's better-known children's books, but these short stories (mainly ghost stories, though not always with real ghosts) were well-written and atmospheric, and often had twists and unexpected endings. She was weakest when she took a stab a science fiction, with mysterious potions a la Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but for the most part it was a very solid and enjoyable collection.
