Haunting Ghost Stories - Deborah Stine

An anthology I had as a kid, and wasn't that impressed then, and I am still not. (story average 3.17) However, there are a few good stories by Wells, Doyle, Jacobs, Bierce, etc., and some decent others. Designed to be for kids too to some degree, of course.

The skull cover is pretty cool though.
