Three authors reveal the obscure corners of the occult. In LeFanu's
Dickon the Devil the narrator discovers that the sinister ghosts of
the past have never left Barwyke Hall. Rudyard Kipling tells the
story of a man who disappears mysteriously. In Hawthorne's The
Minister's Black Veil, the Puritan Reverend Hooper is plagued by a
terrible secret sin that forces him to wear a black veil.
