I just read The Hungry House by Robert Bloch. Bloch is primarily a crime and horror writer (most know him from his novel Psycho, adapted by Hitchcock). The prose is a little dated (I don’t mind this usually), but the story is still very disturbing.
Hungry House is a soft horror short story about a married couple who buy a house.
… “Then it came. Perhaps it was there all the time; waiting for them in the house.”
One of the first owners of the house was Laura Bellman, an exceptional young beauty– mirrors in every room. Ahh, vanity! Then Laura grows old, ugly, and afraid. But mirrors don’t lie … or do they?
. . . “She was all alone. Laura and her mirrors.”
I won’t tell you how Laura dies but after her death, the house spawns mysterious disappearances and deaths. And the married couple who move in?
You can enjoy this little homespun mystery in The Weird, A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer on Amazon.com. http://www.amazon.com/The-Weird-Compendium-Strange-ebook/dp/B006TXZD3G.
