Roald Dahl's Book of Ghost Stories 1983 is a collection of ghost stories chosen by Roald Dahl

Dahl read 749 supernatural tales from an array of writers at the British Museum before choosing 14 that he considered the best In the book Dahl writes; "Spookiness is, after all, the real purpose of the ghost story" He initially did this while working to develop an American television programme that would feature dramatisations of these stories He wrote a pilot based on E F Benson's "The Hanging of Alfred Wadham", that was then filmed, but when producers saw the film they were concerned that it would offend American Catholics, due to the story being about the stipulations of confession As a result the show was cancelled, and years later Dahl decided to use his research to make a book
