Louisa May Alcott as horror writer

So who knew that Louisa May Alcott (author of Little Women) wrote horror fiction? Apparently she wrote at least one ghost story, The Abbot’s Ghost; or, Maurice Treherne’s Temptation (published in 1867) and in 1869 she even wrote a mummy story, Lost in a Pyramid; or, The Mummy’s Curse.

Both stories are mentioned on Tim Prasil’s blog here.
