Tales of Men and Ghosts is a collection of short stories written by Edith Wharton and originally published in 1910. These uncanny little stories explore the darker parts of the human mind, and are sure to appeal to lovers of strange fiction and collectors of Wharton's prolific work.

The stories contained herein include: The Bolted Door, His Father's Son, The Daunt Diana, The Debt, Full Circle, The Legend, The Eyes, The Blonde Beast, Afterward, and The Letters. Edith Wharton (1862 - 1937) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, short story writer, and designer.
