Halloween Bingo Week 5

I'm looking for suggestions for short stories or novellas that would fit the Haunted Houses square (and yes, I've looked at the Haunted Houses & Ghosts list but they all appear to be novels).

 

If I stated that 1 of the books I read was out of pattern, with the request above could you predict the pattern I'm aiming for?

 

 

White ghost = called

Grey monster = read

Brainy Guy = read + called
