With ghost stories that stretch back to biblical times, it is clear that people have been delighting in scaring one another for a long time. Of course, it is a genre that certainly doesn't appeal to everyone, but there are still plenty of readers who love to be terrified. These days there is no shortage of movies and television shows that deliver the ghostly thrills that audiences crave, but this certainly doesn't mean that books with ghost stories are obsolete. There is still something uniquely chilling about reading a ghost story all on your own, preferably with the lights dimmed and the house quiet.
