Charles Dickens wrote a number of supernatural and horror stories, some of which were included in his longer works, while others were published in magazines. This collection gathers them together in one volume, providing an invaluable insight into the author's storytelling apprenticeship and his steady growth towards excellence. As well as offering a further dimension to the world of his better-known masterpieces, these tales - from 'The Story of the Goblins Who Stole a Sexton' to the celebrated 'The Signalman' - illustrate Dickens's well-known love of a spooky story told around a blazing fire, the pastime of a bygone age to be rediscovered for our own delight.

"That which glitters is not always gold."-To Be Read at Dusk
A slim, enjoyable collection of Dickens's ghost/supernatural stories, including short stories from various sources and excerpts from "The Pickwick Papers" and "Nicholas Nickleby." Includes notes and a short biography. Also check out his friend Wilkie Collins's "The Woman in White" and "The Moonstone."

A nifty little volume of the short stories of Charles Dickens, some republished from "The Pickwick Papers", featuring goblins and animated furniture.
