Blurb:

Selected and Edited with an Introduction and Notes by David Blair, University of Kent at Canterbury

This superb new collection brings together stories from the earliest decades of Gothic writing with later 19th and early 20th century tales from the period in which Gothic diversified into the familiar forms of the ghost-and horror-story. Some of these stories, like the haunting The Lame Priest are ‘lost masterpieces’ and several have never been anthologised before.
