    The Haunted House PDF/EPUB Õ The Haunted Kindle - haunted epub, house free, The Haunted epub, The Haunted House PDFEPUBIt’s Not the House That’s HauntedI am sure that I will not spoil anything when I tell you right at the start that you must not expect a haunted house in this collection of short stories Rather each of the stories included in this collection tell you something about the fears worries and preoccupations of the minds of their respective narrators This could be the breeding ground for some truly spine chilling yarns but alas the title The Haunted House is misleading in that the house is not haunted at all I am telling you this beforehand lest you should approach this collection with wrong expectations as I most certainly did The Haunted House is a collaboration of Dickens’s with a handful of other writers and it appeared in the 1859 Christmas number of Dickens’s periodical All the Year Round Probably Dickens wanted to live up to the public’s expectation of his delivering his annual Christmas story without putting too much time into it His collaborators were well known writers
