Product description

Review

Review from previous edition The Oxford editors have tried to be comprehensive, to map out the development of the Victorian ghost story from c.1850. As a result, they have given us some gems. (Daniel Easterman, Books)

They have produced a thoroughly eclectic sampling of the era. (Evening Standard)

splendid collection...Just the thing for long dark evenings. (Andrew Langley, Bath & West Evening Chronicle)

the genuine article, not an anthology that crumbles at a touch ... This is an anthology far larger than its 500 pages, for it will have readers hastening to a decent library to follow up the authors here sampled. (Daily Telegraph)

the perfect literary shop of horrors (The Observer)

finely produced (Times Literary Supplement)

you'll want nothing more than morning to come darned quick (SHE)

Cox and Gilbert's canny rummagings into the spooky annals of a century or so ago unearth some relishable lesser-known blood-curdlers ... Victorian Ghost Stories contains a tremendous clutch of tales and, as the era nears its end, they tighten their gruesome grip. (Sunday Times)

Gripping tales perfect for reading aloud. (Independent on Sunday)

In the midst of life we are in death' had real meaning for the Victorians, so perhaps it's not surprising that they excelled at ghost stories. Here are 35 of the best of them. (Books)

a fat collection of some 31 tales, with a knowledgeable and useful introduction ... What is most fascinating about these stories is the indirect picture of Victorian life they give ... this mammoth Oxford volume illustrates the richness of that lamented literary harvest. (Financial Times)

About the Author

Michael Cox is Editor of A Dictionary of Writers and Their Works, and The Oxford Book of Twentieth-Century Ghost Stories. R. A. Gilbertis a well-known antiquarian bookseller.
