Alfred Hitchcock [Robert Arthur] (ed.) – Haunted Houseful (Four Square, 1965)

I’ve not seen a copy, but believe the contents to be the same as the Random House original from 1961, subtitled ‘Nine “COOL” stories about Haunted Houses and Ghosts for Boys and Girls’, which comprise.

Manly Wade Wellman – Let’s Haunt A House
Constance Savery – The Wastwych Secret
Walter R. Brooks – Jimmy Takes Vanishing Lessons
Jack Bechdolt – The Mystery Of Rabbit Run
Elizabeth Coatsworth – The Forgotten Island
John Kendrick Bangs – The Water Ghost Of Harrowby Hall
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – The Red-Headed League
Mark Twain – The Treasure In The Cave
Donald & Louise Peattie – The Mystery In Four-And-A-Half Street

Would appreciate if someone could confirm or deny! It certainly doesn’t look heavy on horror content, does it?
