    Classic gothic horror stories from the literary mistresses of the past!
     
    Many of gothic horror’s spookiest tales have come from the pens of women. Yet a substantial number of these women were overshadowed by their male contemporaries, especially with regard to the classics. Ladies of Gothic Horror (A Collection of Classic Stories) redresses this imbalance by bringing together a selection of gothic stories from the past written exclusively by women. Carefully edited and compiled by author and anthologist Mitzi Szereto, Ladies of Gothic Horror offers readers plenty of good old-fashioned chills and thrills. Whether you’re a devotee of the genre, a literature lover, an academic or a student, this volume of short fiction is sure to please. The biographies accompanying each story will show that these women were anything but typical for their time. Includes seventeen stories from authors Mary Shelley, Elizabeth Gaskell, Edith Wharton, Marjorie Bowen, Gertrude Atherton, Virginia Woolf, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Elia W. Peattie and many more.

    "We have stories with ghosts, some malevolent, some seeking vengeance, and some simply waiting for a wrong to be corrected….

    A founding father of the American conservative movement, Russell Kirk (1918–94) was also a renowned and bestselling writer of fiction. Kirk’s focus was the ghost story, or “ghostly tale” – a “decayed art” of which he considered himself a “last remaining master.” Old House of Fear, Kirk’s first novel, revealed this mastery at work. Its 1961 publication was a sensation, outselling all of Kirk’s other books combined, including The Conservative Mind, his iconic study of American conservative thought. A native of Michigan, Kirk set Old House of Fear in the haunted isles of the Outer Hebrides, drawing on his time in Scotland as the first American to earn a doctorate of letters from the University of St. Andrews. The story concerns Hugh Logan, an attorney sent by an aging American industrialist to Carnglass to purchase his ancestral island and its castle called the Old House of Fear. On the island, Logan meets Mary MacAskival, a red-haired ingénue and love interest, and the two face off against Dr. Edmund Jackman, a mystic who has the island under his own mysterious control. This new edition features an introduction by James Panero, Executive Editor of The New Criterion.

    I am in prison awaiting trial for the murder of my wife's lover... My version of what occurred is so utterly fantastic that it is certain to be taken as an attempt by me to show that I am mad. But the doctors have already agreed that I am sane; so for myself I see no escape from the gallows. Nevertheless, I swear by Almighty God that all I am about to dictate into a recording machine is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. 
     
    With Sir Gifford Hillary and Wing Commander Johnny Norton involved in plans to counter the might of Soviet Russia, interest soon centres on the evil Lady Ankaret and the tragedy which occurred at Longshot Hall, South Hampshire, on the night of the 9th September. A victim is struck down, and from that moment onwards the events which follow seem, at first, fantastic and unbelievable–but are later realised to be entirely logical. What does happen after death? And why should Sir Gifford find himself in prison, on trial for his life?

    An almost-been in his twenties, former actor Orson Beck can barely afford rent and child support on the pittance he earns at the grocery store job that was supposed to be temporary. His ex-wife left him for a more successful actor, and he’s too broke to be the kind of father he wants to be. 
     
    Orson is about to give up his dreams of stardom and focus on being a single dad when he receives a mysterious invitation in the mail: he’s been nominated for the Onyx List, an honor that could revive his career … or kill it forever. 
     
    When Orson makes the cut, his sudden success forces him to question every story he’s ever told himself about who he is. He isn’t sure what he really wants anymore -- but the ultrapowerful agents who’ve taken him on are already working behind the scenes to make sure he gets it, no matter what the cost. 
     
    By the time Orson realizes that his agents see his friends and family as obstacles to his success and have been working behind the scenes to isolate him, it’s too late to object to being a pawn in their Hollywood games.
     
    As his newfound fame and fortune grows, will Orson destroy everyone he’s ever loved to keep it?
