*This is an edited version of Richard Dalby’s The Mammoth Book of Ghost Stories and is missing the last ten stories from that anthology.
◦This anthology even has the edited contents of The Mammoth Book of Ghost Stories listed and printed in the same order.
◦An instant remainder to be sold in the Barnes & Noble bookstores.
◦There is an uncredited and untitled two stanza poem that opens the book just before the table of contents.
◦The title of “Is There Anybody There?” and “I’m Sure It Was No. 31” are listed as Is There Anybody There? and I’m Sure It Was No. 31 on the contents page but the titles are corrected on these story’s title pages.
