Academic But Relevant 18 Dec. 2013
By KC Redding-Gonzalez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very academic look at the Ghost Story's British origins which is equally important for those fans of American Ghost Stories because the roots of British literary accomplishments have always held a particularly deep and lasting influence on the genre as a whole. It is not an "easy read" but is well worth the effort for students of the gothic and fans of horror, terror and the weird. For those who want deep research into the evolution of the ghost story, this book is a technical, but important work.
