It is better that you should judge for yourself, than enter the house with an imagination influenced by previous narratives; only be prepared to see and to hear something or other, and take whatever precautions you yourself please."

"Have you never had a curiosity yourself to pass a night in that house?" "Yes. I passed not a night, but three hours in broad daylight alone in that house. My curiosity is not satisfied, but it is quenched. I have no desire to renew the experiment.

What a superb story. A courageous young man and his servant try to find the reason for a house near Oxford Street is haunted. The author pulls out all the stops for a great haunted house story: a mystery, a giant shadowy monster, eerieness, sinister figures acting in a secretive way. Then a secret r
