The House Next Door by Anne River Siddons
Haunted houses don’t always have to be old and steeped in dark history. Siddons’sThe House Next Dooris about a beautiful new house, and is told not from the perspective of this house’s inhabitants but rather through that of the neighbors, Colquitt and Walter Kennedy. They are witness to the accidents and tragedies that come to surround the new house and afflict its inhabitants.
Burnt Offerings doesn’t get a whole lot of attention these days, and when people do talk about Marasco’s novel it is usually in relation to the book’s influence on Stephen King’s The Shining. But Marasco’s novel preceded all of the big haunted house books of its decade, including not just King’s book but Jay Anson’s The Amityville Horror as well, so it deserves recognition in its own right as a sort of ur-text for haunted houses of the later 20th century. In Burnt Offerings, Ben and Marian Rolfe accept an offer to rent a mansion in upstate New York for a fantastically low price (nothing suspicious there…); the only catch is that they are responsible for preparing meals for the mysterious, elderly Mrs. Allardyce who lives unseen in a distant wing of the house. (I’m sure it’s fenezca. Really.)
