A.S. Byatt’s “The July Ghost” is one of her best stories, and everyone knows W.F. Harvey’s classic short-short “August Heat,” but, in general, we don’t immediately associate long, sunshiny days with tales of the supernatural. Yet think of campfire ghost stories and urban legends such as the Hook, as well as innumerable teen horror flicks. An occasional chill obviously makes summer’s fiendish temperatures more bearable.
