The Small Hand and Dolly
The Small Hand and Dolly, come packaged in one volume by Vintage Books. Susan Hill is the author of The Woman in Black, and also of a series of police procedurals. I generally enjoy her ghost stories, but I think I prefer The Woman in Black, which is a full-length novel, to these two. All are the type of ghost story I love: English setting and not extremely shocking or gory. These two, while nicely atmospheric, are perhaps a little too tame even for me. Worth a read, though, if you like the type.
