De la Mare wrote some fabulous ones - no wonder his poetry was sometimes so creepy. According to the Wikipedia entry on him: 'De la Mare was also a significant writer of ghost stories. John Clute comments that "in his long career, De la Mare seems to have published about 100 stories, of which about eighty-five have been collected. At least forty of these have supernatural content".'

Interestingly, very little of this stuff is still in print, either public domain or commercial. Now *that* sounds like a case for some serious digitizing ...
