THE OCCUPANT OF THE ROOM (1917)
by Algernon Blackwood
An Englishman on vacation in the Swiss Alps, attempts to reserve a room at a quiet village inn, only to discover there are no vacancies. He is later offered a room that is 'in a sense engaged', and the rumors voiced by the inn's porter regarding the possible fate of the previous occupant excite his imagination.
