I remember reading this as a child in some horror anthology of my mum's. I must have read hundreds of scary tales, but this is one of the few which stayed in my head. So simple, and yet so terrifying. We fear what we see with our mind's eye so much more than what we see with our physical eye.

Disturbing story which has clearly proved the inspiration for many other writers (Stephen King - Pet Sematary I suspect was inspired by this). If you like stories with shocking twists then you will enjoy

A short but brilliant story I've read many times. Only takes about 20 minutes to read but you'll not forget it. Exceptionally unexpected twist at the end.

This is only a very short read, but nonetheless enjoyable. If you have a spare 15 to 20 minutes on a cold winters night I thoroughly recommend it.
