Dedicated to that ominous strain of horror that sends a shiver down your spine, this selection of masterful tales gathers the weird and wonderful from a rich tradition of genre writing. The sound of a sinister tread in an apparently abandoned house; mysterious crimes committed in the dead of night; a glimpse of a monstrous apparition through the murky gloom: all find their home here.

This latest anthology in the popular series of Gothic Fantasy collections features new stories by contemporary authors alongside classic tales by E.T.A. Hoffmann, Robert Louis Stevenson, Edith Nesbit, Sheridan Le Fanu, Hugh Walpole, Amyas Northcote, Ralph Adams Cram, Harriet Prescott Spofford, Edith Wharton, M.R. James, E.F. Benson (and more).

About the Author

Emily Alder is Lecturer at Edinburgh Napier University, where she teaches literature, film, popular culture and
ecocriticism from the nineteenth century to the present. She is an interdisciplinary researcher whose interests lie in literature and science and the environmental humanities. Spoken, written and visual narratives communicate, construct and help us to understand individuals, materials and practices in the social and physical world around us, and Emily’s research seeks to learn more about these relationships in the contexts of genre fiction, science and environmental problems. Current projects include a monograph, Weird Fiction and Science at the Fin de Siècle, co-editing a Gothic Studies special issue on the topic of Nautical Gothic, and co-leading the Ade of Frankenstein project which commemorated the bicentenaries of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in 2016 and 2018. She has published and presented on the fin-de-siècle Gothic and 20/21st-century Gothic/ Horror/SF and is now editor of the journal Gothic Studies for the International Gothic Association.
