Summary

Pumpkins' Glow: 200+ Eerie Tales for Halloween is a masterful collection of spine-chilling stories that weaves together the literary prowess of some of the most significant authors in the Gothic and horror genres. This anthology spans centuries and continents, featuring a spectrum of styles from the terse, unsettling realism of Ambrose Bierce to the rich, elaborate prose of Edgar Allan Poe. The works within explore the shadowy depths of the supernatural and the human psyche, making for a remarkable cross-section of classic literature. Standout pieces dive into haunted existences and ghostly apparitions, all under the eerie glow of the Halloween moon. The ensemble of authors represented in Pumpkins' Glow includes foundational figures like Mary Shelley and H.P. Lovecraft, whose contributions helped define the horror genre, alongside literary giants such as Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy. Their stories collectively resonate with themes of existential dread, societal fears, and personal demons, encapsulating various historical and cultural contexts from the Romantic to the Victorian era. This rich confluence of backgrounds and epochs creates a tapestry that is both hauntingly beautiful and profoundly unsettling, offering readers a panoramic view of the evolution of horror literature. For enthusiasts of the supernatural and scholars of literature alike, Pumpkins' Glow offers an unprecedented opportunity to immerse oneself in the multidimensional landscape of horror and Gothic fiction. Each tale stands as a gateway to different eras and ideologies, reflective of the fears and anxieties of their time, thus providing a deep, educative insight into the human condition through the lens of horror. This anthology is an essential volume for anyone looking to explore the nuances and breadth of this enduring literary tradition, providing both a thrilling adventure and a profound cultural reflection suitable for Halloween - and beyond.

    The setting, geography and history of this story by Rev'd Sabine Baring-Gould, author of Onward Christian Soldiers and a number of other well-known hymns, are all accurate, or at least as accurate as local lore will allow. Kinver has long been a midlands beauty spot, and the UK National Trust own and open one of the rock-dwellings mentioned. The 'Stewponey' too was an inn until a year or two into the twenty-first century: http://www.blackcountrybugle.co.uk/News/Reminder-of-the-heyday-of-the-old-Stewponey-2.htm - the present reader having stopped there for a drink and a meal many times. 
     
    The story, whether you call it a romance, a historical novel or a horror story - comprising as it does a young woman being offered as a prize in a bowling match, a wife-burning, highwaymen and buried treasure - is of course wholly fiction. (Introduction by AJM)
