Read full description of the books:The Haunters and the Haunted is a collection of fifty-seven ghost stories -- including famous literary works, bits of myth and folklore and even regional accounts. Among these stories are "The Fall of the House of Usher" by Edgar Allen Poe, a story about an unnamed narrator who visits his friend Roderick Usher. Roderick is ill and the narrator wishes to improve his mood by spending time with him, reading to him, listening to the music Roderick composes. But as he spends more time at the House of Usher, he realizes that there is something strange about Roderick and there's something even stranger about the house. He must escape this house before this strangeness of being infects him as well.
Read information about the authorErnest Percival Rhys (July 17, 1859 – May 25, 1946) was an English writer, best known for his role as founding editor of the Everyman's Library series of affordable classics. He wrote essays, stories, poetry, novels and plays. He was born in London, and brought up in Carmarthen and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
After working in the coal industry, he was employed doing editorial work on the Camelot Series of 65 reprints and translations from 1886, for five years, while he turned to writing as a profession. He was a founder member in 1890 of the Rhymer's Club in London, and a contributor to The Book of the Rhymers' Club (1893).
In 1906, he persuaded J. M. Dent, the publisher, for whom he was working on The Lyric Poets series, to start out on the ambitious Everyman project, aiming to publish 1,000 titles; the idea was to put out ten at a time. The target was eventually reached, ten years after Rhys died.
