From the once-popular yet unfairly neglected Victorian writer Charlotte Riddell comes a pair of novels which cleverly upholster the familiar furniture of the haunted house story. In An Uninhabited House, the hauntings are seen through the perspective of the solicitors who hold the deed of the property. What happens when the world of commerce and law meets the supernatural? In Fairy Water, Riddell suggests a complex moral character for her haunting spirit. Her succinct, witty writing style renders the story a spirited and approachable read despite its age.
Haunted Houses Hardback edition by Charlotte Riddell
Charlotte Riddell (1832-1906) was an exceptionally popular Irish-born writer of over 50 books and numerous short stories. She was part-owner and editor of the London literary journal St James's Magazine and a renowned figure of the literary canvas of late-Victorian England.
This new selection offers the most chilling and unsettling of Hodgson's short fiction, from encounters with abominations at sea to fireside tales of otherworldly forces from his inventive `occult detective' character Carnacki, the ghost finder.
The stories in this anthology depict the haunting moment when characters come face-to-face with their own mortality. Spanning two centuries, Mortal Echoes features some of the finest writers in the English language - including Edgar Allan Poe, Graham Greene, May Sinclair and H. G. Wells.
Howling down the tunnels comes a new collection showcasing the greatest stories of strange happenings on the tracks, many of which are republished here for the first time since their original departure.
Delving deep into the sub-genre of Dark Fantasy, fiction expert Mike Ashley has gathered an unsettling mixture of twisted tales, encounters with logic-defying creatures and nightmarish fables certain to perplex, beguile and of course, entertain.
