Ghosts By Gaslight Giveaway
In this mesmerizing collection, the editors bring together fresh, modern feats of the phantasmagoric in the grand tradition of classics such as Henry James' The Turn of the Screw, Robert Lewis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell Tale Heart.
Featuring award winning and bestselling authors including: Peter Beagle, Sean Williams, Gene Wolfe, Garth Nix, Margo Lanagan and Robert Silverberg, who weave their magic in stories containing deep frights, shuddering chills, disquieting subtlety, shocking psychological ambiguity and radical twists on all the classic elements of the ghostly tale. Here, too, in all their gothic glory are the eerie mechanisms of steampunk: engines waiting to entrap, magnify, or focus on the souls of the dead.
Revitalizing the Victorian and Edwardian ghost story for twenty-first century readers, Ghosts by Gaslight reminds us that within the darkness lurk not only our most profound fears, but also unsuspected horrors that dwell inside ourselves.
