Book Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

Haunted Castles is the definitive, complete collection of Ray Russell's masterful Gothic horror stories, including the famously terrifying novella trio of "Sardonicus," "Sanguinarius," and "Sagittarius." The characters that sprawl through Haunted Castles are frightful to the core: the heartless monster holding two lovers in limbo; the beautiful dame journeying down a damned road toward depravity (with the help of an evil gypsy); the man who must wear his fatal crimes on his face in the form of an awful smile. Engrossing, grotesque, perverted, and completely entrancing, Russell's Gothic tales are the best kind of dreadful.

    1. Will you be reading King's sequel to THE SHINING, DR. SLEEP?

  2. I don't know if I'd call it a horror story per se, but Bag of Bones by Stephen King still gives me chills. I listened to the audiobook and there are some scenes that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up (the kind of feeling that makes you want to double check all the locks on the windows and doors).
