Among the stories included in the spooky collection:

· In "My Life with R. H. Macy," a young woman gets a job working at a dystopian department store where everyone's called Miss Cooper and sales associates go missing all the time.

· In "What a Thought," a man is enjoying an evening at home with his husband, when he gets the thought, "I should kill him."

· In "The Story We Used to Tell," two women become trapped in a photograph and must fight for their lives to escape.

Jackson's work was the basis of the hit Netflix series The Haunting of Hill House and the classic Robert Wise-directed film The Haunting. She is also the author of the iconic short story "The Lottery," and was the subject of the recent film Shirley, executive produced by Martin Scorsese and starring Elisabeth Moss.
