"Ghosts don't exist: they are experienced. Starting from this observation, later echoed by Freud, the liminal late-nineteenth- early-twentieth-century figure Vernon Lee became the first master of the modern supernatural tale. Lee's masterpiece, Hauntings, returns to life with additional stories in a first-rate edition from Broadview Press, with valuable contextual materials provided by Catherine Maxwell and Patricia Pulham. Let the work of seduction begin."--Richard Dellamora
