Overview

In this volume are reprinted, complete and unabridged, five great classics of the Victorian supernatural novel: The Uninhabited House by Mrs. J. H. Riddell; The Amber Witch by J. W. Meinhold; Monsieur Maurice by Amelia B. Edwards; A Phantom Lover by Vernon Lee; and The Ghost of Guir House by Charles Willing Beale.
These five novels present the entire panoply of Victorian thrills and chills at their best: pale ghosts wandering through the ancient chambers of a deserted mansion; the impingement of the restless, unquiet evil on the present; the Devil and bizarre witchcraft, strange magical dooms; love from the past and the no-boundary condition of death; hidden powers, occult knowledge, mental structures and weird magic not recorded elsewhere.
These five novels, although recognized masterpieces of supernatural horror, are nowhere else in print. Indeed, three out of five of them have never before been reprinted since their initial appearance in fabulously rare periodicals and special publications. This is your first chance to read these fine products of the Victorian era.
