Vote for this month's Story Selection at A Curious Singularity

It's time to vote on which story will be the focus of the October discussion at A Curious Singularity, due to begin next week. Five stories have been nominated, most of them, appropriately enough for October, rather creepy ones. There's excellent potential for overlap here for those of you also participating in Carl V.'s R.I.P. II Challenge, or The Literate Kitten's Horror Short Story Challenge. Please let me know, in the comments below this post or its duplicate at A Curious Singularity or via email, which of the following stories you would prefer to discuss this month.

Wilkie Collins, "Mrs. Zant and the Ghost" (1879);
Rudyard Kipling, "The Phantom Rickshaw" (1885);
Guy de Maupassant, "The Horla" (1887);
Jean-Paul Sartre,"The Wall" (1939); or,
Edith Wharton, "Kerfol" (1916).

Thanks to Heather, John, and Pauline for these excellent suggestions!

Oooh, lots of good stuff. I think I'll have to go for Wilkie Collins, as I've never read him.
