Ellen Datlow has posted the table of contents for her upcoming (March 2013) anthology from Tachyon: Hauntings:

This spine-tingling anthology—complied by the horror genre’s most acclaimed editor—collects a chilling array of ghost stories from the past twenty-five years. Our obsession with the mysteries of the afterlife is explored in these supernatural tales of haunted houses, lost souls, unexplained phenomena, and “good” neighbors. Neil Gaiman’s “Closing Time” is a troubling tale recounted by an elderly man on a cold drizzly night in London. Joyce Carol Oates’ “Haunted” is a chilling tale of two young girls drawn to abandoned houses…and what they find in one. Peter Straub’s “Hunger: An Introduction” introduces Francis Wardwell, who is eager to inform you that everything you think you know about ghosts is wrong. Just remember, the road to hell begins with a single step.
