Ghost Stories: Forgotten Classic Tales
Haunting tales brought back from the dead
The ghost story has long been a staple of world literature, but many of the genre's greatest tales have been forgotten, overshadowed by their authors' bestselling work in other genres. In this spine-tingling anthology, little known stories from literary titans like Charles Dickens and Edith Wharton are collected alongside overlooked works from masters of horror fiction like Edgar Allan Poe and M. R. James.
Acclaimed anthologists Leslie S. Klinger and Lisa Morton set these stories in historical context and trace the literary significance of ghosts in fiction over almost two hundred years—from a traditional English ballad first printed in 1724 through the Victorian era and up to the science fiction–tinged tales of the early twentieth century.
