Practically all of Crispin's novels (humorous detective stories about the eccentric Gervase Fen) have Jamesian elements, and at least one of them has a complete ghost story in it (I forget which one, though).
From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
The Fen with the Jamesian short inserted is either Holy Terrors or The Case Of The Gilded Fly - Craig knows for certain. I can't remember off-hand and can't check as not at home. There's a Crispin thread in the crime section here that covers this. I love Fen, but not remembering exactly has made me realise it's far too long since I revisited Fen country.
Browsing through our library's online catalogue, I spied a volume titled "The World's Greatest Ghost Stories." Not having heard of it before, I reserved it, but was rather disappointed to find out upon collection that it was just RD's Mammoth Book of Ghost Stories under a different name, and I already own a copy of that volume. I was just wondering if anyone knew if Mammoth Ghost Stories 2 was also published under another title.
Yes, I just picked up a signed copy of The Giant Book of Ghost Stories published by Magpie Books in 1993, and the contents are identical to the second Mammoth book. It's got an unexceptional cover featuring a gothic house/castle perched at the top of some rocks. It also seems to have a very loose definition of what a "ghost story" is - I've just been dipping in and out, only reading stories that are unfamiliar to me, but I've enjoyed both The Believers by Robert Arthur and One, Two, Buckle My Shoe by Nugent Barker. I also recently came across a (probably illegal) cover-to-cover scan of the Tartarus edition of Barker's Written With My Left Hand (inside it says "limited to 350 copies"), which I should probably have a look at.
