       Additional Information  
      The Beckoning Fair One is sometimes called the greatest ghost story in the English language; it may well be; certainly it is one of the quietest and most beautiful supernatural tales ever written. It reminds us of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House -- and that's huge praise indeed.
