The ten best ghost stories

Rebecca Armstrong, the features editor for the Independent, named ten of the best ghost stories for her paper. One title on the list:
The Winter Ghosts, By Kate Mosse

A great introduction to Mosse’s work if you haven’t read her longer novels. A young man, mourning his brother who died in the Great War, gets caught in a snow storm in the Pyreneese. He finds a village in which to take refuge and learns more about love and loss. Mosse’s book takes in 13th-century Cathar life.
Read about the other entries on the list.
