The Victorian era is remembered for many things, but one of the fondest is the wide and varied array of short, ghostly, suspenseful tales...often enjoyed around the fireside at Christmastime.
In this new anthology, John Banks performs 12 of the very best, all written by incredibly talented but oft-times overlooked or forgotten authors. Once you tire of Dickens and James, these are the true masters of short-form suspense:

'A Real Country Ghost Story' by Albert Smith
'The Weird Violinist' by Anonymous
'Walsham Grange: A Real Ghost Story' by E. Morant Cox
'Haunted' by Coulson Kernahan
'Nicodemus' by Alfred Crowquill
'The Veiled Portrait' by James Grant
'The Ghost Chamber' by Anonymous
'The Doll’s Ghost' by F. Marion Crawford
'How Peter Parley Laid a Ghost: A Story of Owl’s Abbey' by Anonymous
'The Ghost’s Summons' by Ada Buisson
