3. On the cover, I think, was a picture of a scantily glad vaguely trailer trashy woman running and there might have been a trailer in the background. I am pretty sure that most of the books main setting occurred in either a trailer park or some other working class type abode in the present day (1980s/1990s). One character had a sword. He would go out in his shed/barn and light candles and practice using his sword to put out the candles by swinging at the flames. I think the guy with the sword was supposed to be kind of a down and out loser type. There might have also been someone who had their hand amputated during the course of the story, possibly the dude with the sword?
4. Cover was a dark old gothic-looking house with dark hills and background. Short stories, I think American, horror and suspense, and I seem to remember some story about Amityville but not the haunted house. Stories about dark hills and disappearances too.
6. Someone was sneaking into people's homes, living in closets, and being so quiet that no one knew he was sneaking around their home. It turns out that there are two "sneakers", who were missing boys, but one was violent and the other was special-needs and non-violent.
7. A fairly slim paperback collection of ghost stories, maybe 10 stories in all. I believe all the stories took place in England or the U.K. There were illustrations in it that were crudely drawn but effective. I think the book was probably older, published in the 60's or early 70's, maybe even as far back as the late 50's. The story I remember best, because it and the accompanying illustration frightened me the most, was about a female ghost (quite heavyset?) in the basement of a house or a flat, who was doing laundry at a washtub. Her back was turned when the current owner/renter came upon the ghost, and when the ghost turned around, she was a rotting corpse, (pieces of her actually falling off, IIRC). I think, although am not positive, that the ghost had been killed by her husband while in the basement doing laundry. Scared the hell out of me when she turned around and was decomposing, to say the least.
Simply leave any guesses/suggestions/whatevers in the comments, and I'll go through them upon my return late next week. See y'all!
