The Platform Edge Paperback edition by Mike Ashley
Mike Ashley is an internationally renowned expert on popular fiction of the 19th and 20th century with a superior collection of magazines and journals and an encyclopaedic knowledge of their contents. He has edited two previous anthologies in this series: Glimpses of the Unknown: Lost Ghost Stories and From the Depths and Other Strange Tales of the Sea.
