This is a great addition for your short story collection! I came across the short story “The Pale Man” by chance and ended up loving it! The narrator was an assistant professor suffering from nerves. Upon the suggestion of the university president, he takes a leave of absence and checks in to a creepy country hotel. He becomes obsessed with the strange behavior of another guest who changes rooms every day. The ending has an interesting twist!
