Editorial Reviews

Review

''Klinger mixes well-known and obscure authors in this solid anthology of twenty short tales of terror . . . This volume provides a good introduction to dark fiction of an earlier age.'' --Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Leslie S. Klinger is one of the world's foremost authorities on Sherlock Holmes. He is the editor of the three-volume set The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes. The first two volumes, The Complete Short Stories, won the Edgar for Best Critical/Biographical work. He recently completed The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft. Klinger is a member of the Baker Street Irregulars and lives in Malibu.

Ambrose Bierce (1842-ca. 1914) was an American journalist, short-story writer, and poet. Born in Ohio, he served in the Civil War and then settled in San Francisco. He wrote for Hearst's Examiner, his wit and satire making him the literary dictator of the Pacific coast and strongly influencing many writers. He disappeared into war-torn Mexico in 1913.

Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (1814-1873) was an Irish author and the leading writer of gothic and mystery stories of the time, helping develop the genre in the Victorian Era. His most widely-read works are Uncle Silas, In a Glass Darkly, and Carmilla.

Pierre Jules Theophile Gautier (1811-1872) was a French poet, dramatist, novelist, journalist, and art and literary critic. He was widely esteemed by writers as diverse as Balzac, Baudelaire, the Goncourt brothers, Flaubert, Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, Henry James, Proust and Oscar Wilde.
