Overview

Varla Ventura, Coast to Coast favorite, Weird News blogger on Huffington Post, and author of The Book of the Bizarre and Beyond Bizarre, introduces Weiser Books’ new Collection of forgotten occult classics. Paranormal Parlor is an eerie assemblage of affordable digital editions, curated with Varla’s sixth sense for tales of the weird and unusual.

First published in 1859's Christmas edition of All Year Round, a publication edited by Charles Dickens, as a collection of tales centered around Dickens' own story about The Haunted House. Set in an abandoned house where the guests are all asked to take up residence in one of each of the rooms and spend the Twelfth Night of Christmas (once believed to be a night of highest magical power when the veil between the mortal and the sprit world was thinnest). In a Clue-like evening, each of the rooms is inhabited and Dickens published the collection of eight stories with different authors writing from the point of view of the ghosts in each room. Join Englishwoman and popular author of the 1800s Hesba Stretton aka Sarah Smith as she recalls the story of the Ghost in the Clock Room.

Meet the Author

Hesba Stretton (1832-1911) was the pen name of an English gentlewoman named Sarah Smith. She became a contributor to All Year Round when her sister, without Sarah’s knowledge, submitted a piece that Dickens accepted for publication. She is most well known for having written a book in 1866 called Jessica’s First Prayer, which had sold by the end of the 19th century over a million and a half copies! She died in 1911.
