From "The Empty House": "Certain houses, like certain persons, manage somehow to proclaim at once their character for evil. With houses it is the aroma of evil deeds committed under a particular roof, long after the actual doers have passed away, that makes the gooseflesh come and the hair rise. Something of the original passion of the evil-doer, and of the horror felt by his victim, enters the heart of the innocent watcher, and he becomes suddenly conscious of tingling nerves, creeping skin, and a chilling of the blood. He is terror-stricken without apparent cause. . . . "

Also included in this volume are "A Haunted Island," "A Case of Eavesdropping," "Keeping His Promise," "With Intent to Steal," "The Wood of the Dead," "Smith: An Episode in a Lodging-House," "A Suspicious Gift," "The Strange Adventures of a Private Secretary in New York," and "Skeleton Lake: An Episode in Camp."
