Description: While Edith Nesbit's mainstream fiction has often been revived, her tales of terror - apart from one or two anthologized pieces - have fallen into unwarranted neglect.
Synopsis: While Edith Nesbit's mainstream fiction has often been revived, her tales of terror - apart from one or two anthologized pieces - have fallen into unwarranted neglect. In the context of her life and marriage to the priapic Hubert Bland, these powerfully told tales, with their frequent sexual overtones, reflect deep-seated fears and anxieties - in particular, childhood memories of seeing mummified corpses in a Bordeaux church and a lifelong dread of being buried alive. But these are more than attempts at personal exorcism. Edith Nesbit was a natural storyteller and her gifts are shown to the full in this collection, which will do much to re-establish her as one of the most accomplished and entertaining ghost-story writers of the past hundred years.
