      "The Monkey's Paw" by WW Jacobs This is one of the most anthologised of all ghost stories, and its "be careful what you wish for" message has become one of the clichés of the genre.   His book, Twelve Years a Slave, instead of letting Stowe tell her story, Jacobs decided to write her own, which are both self-authored and stylistically superior to Northup's ghost-written.
