Summary

Victorian author Mary E. Wilkins Freeman (1852-1930) is most remembered today for her ghost stories, but she was a prolific and popular author in many genres: not only the supernatural, but mystery and suspense, romance, and especially contemporary fiction were her speciality. She produced more than two dozen volumes of published short stories and novels. For this volume, we have grouped the most famous of her supernatural stories together at the beginning, then moved on to more mainstream works. I’m certain you will find something you enjoy; her interests and subject matter were broad, and her work holds up remarkably well today.
