Victorian chills from a great writer of the genre As with so many writers of the nineteenth century, the author of this single volume collection of tales of the supernatural and other worldly, Sabine Baring-Gould was a man of many talents. Born near Exeter in 1834, his output was astonishing and his bibliography contains at least 1,240 works. In his time he was a well known and admired antiquarian, scholar and novelist. Many remember him as a writer of hymns, among which 'Onward Christian Soldiers' is the most well known today. The ghost story was such a popular literary form in the Victorian period that it barely needs saying that Baring-Gould tried his hand at writing them-it would be more surprising if he had not. This did not guarantee he would be a good writer of chilling tales, but fortunately for posterity he was. This Leonaur collection of Baring-Gould's supernatural fiction includes three novelettes, 'Margery of Quether' a chilling story that features an eternal succubus, 'A Professional Secret' and 'Mustapha.' Among the twenty-two short stories in this substantial Leonaur edition readers will find 'Crowdy Marsh,' 'Glamr,' 'The Dead Trumpeter of Hurst Castle,' 'The 9.30 Up Train,' 'The 'Bold Venture' and many others.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.**
