What better way, horror lovers, to chill your spine with the greatest ghost tales ever put on paper by reading them - to yourself, or out loud - on a blood red e-book browser? Whether you favour the works of MR James, Edgar Allen Poe, HR Wakefield, Algernon Blackwood or HP Lovecraft, Bookeen's Opus has a gigabyte of on-board storage for your terror-filled tomes and an E Ink screen that's readable by the most flickery candle-light.

Scab Scarlet-framed Haunted Portraits

One to taunt those of nervous disposition and sceptical old academics alike. The low-tech but effective Haunted Portraits use lenticular screens to morph ancestral pictures into scary rotting corpses as your guests turn their heads. The 5 x 7in images work best when seated in a picture frame - and what better than a blood-red glass affair like the one below, from Heals of London?
