M. R. James, Elizabeth Gaskell, Charles Dickens, Robert Louis Stevenson, Amelia B. Edwards, Arthur Conan Doyle, F. Marion Crawford
Publisher: Chronicle Books LLC
A classic collection of haunting stories by Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, and more. A vengeful phantom lurks in a country graveyard. A whaling crew becomes trapped on a haunted ship. A human skull is kept locked in a cupboard—but sometimes at night, it screams . . . This collection of tales transports the reader to a time when staircases creaked in old manor houses, and a candle could be blown out by a gust of wind—or by a passing ghost. Penned by some of the greatest Victorian novelists and masters of the ghost story genre, each is illustrated with exquisitely eerie artwork.
