Editorial Reviews

Review

"Odds are better you’ll see a ghost, or at least find yourself spooked to the core by one of the chilling stories compiled by Lisa Morton and Leslie S. Klinger in Ghost Stories. Some of my favorite 19th-and-early-20th-century writers—Edith Wharton, Edgar Allan Poe, Wilkie Collins—are found in this collection . . . But the real fun of reading this book was in discovering writers I had not known before." -- Danielle Trussoni, New York Times Book Review

"Rising smoothly above the acres of anthologies of 19th- and early-20th-century weird and supernatural fiction, author Morton and anthologist Klinger combine brilliant stories by obscure writers with obscure stories by famous writers to create an outstanding work that serves equally as scholarship and entertainment. This is a work of art, a pleasure to read, and a serious and welcome contribution to the study of the ghost story in English.", Publishers Weekly (starred)

"A terrific new volume of neglected spooky tales.", Black Gate

"There are few things as comfortably rewarding as settling into a collection of ghost stories. What elevates this compilation are the details provided by Morton and Klinger which add edifying and entertaining elements. Providing historical perspective along with explanations of allusions and deciphering of antiquated speech/language, they enhance the appreciation of the fine authors whose works are included in the book.", Diabolique
