I read 'heart-shaped box' earlier this year. That one was really good. Wouldn't say it had a classic style, but in terms of the ghost element, it certainly did.

You could try Kate Mosse's "Winter Ghosts". I really enjoyed it - a short book, but very good.

Dark Matter is an excellent tale - set in the frozen wastes where the sun slips below the horizon: and doesn't reappear for months.

The Haunting of Hill House (Penguin Modern Classics) is a classic spooky read. The House of Lost Souls (or any others by this author) are also good. Susan Hill has also written some great ghost stories, such as The Small Hand. If you liked Dark Matter, you might enjoy Cold Earth, which, although not really a ghost story, is a really good read and has a similar feel to it.

Ghost story with a difference:- Try Barbara Erskine her books are great. A mixture of past and present combined.

A Book of Horrors by Stephen Jones is a collection of short horror stories, which I think is a great little book to dip in and out of. Includes several different styles and some well known authors in this genre check it out!

Have you read any William Hope Hodgson? He's done a few good ghost stories.

Incidentally, I just finished a book called Will Storr vs The Supernatural. Quite an entertaining book about a sceptic who spends time with a series of paranormal investigators. Only one or two creepy moments in it though. Mostly it's about the psychology of the sorts of people who go ghost hunting and stuff, but without being mocking or judgmental.
Nice little reveal about the phoniness of Yvette and co (grin). Like we needed confirmation.

If you enjoyed Dark Matter, you might try these:
The Woman In Black
The Little Stranger,
The Turn of the Screw (Dover Thrift)
Her Fearful Symmetry
The Anatomy of Ghosts
If you've already read Rebecca (VMC), I'd recommend Rebecca's Tale.

Check these babys out. They'll leave more than a shiver in your stride...

Tales of the Undead - Hell Whore (Tales of the Undead Series)
Tales of the Undead - Suffer Eternal (Tales of the Undead Series)
