Classic gothic horror stories from the literary mistresses
of the past! Many of gothic horrorâ€™s spookiest tales have
come from the pens of women. Yet a substantial number of
these women were overshadowed by their male contemporaries,
especially with regard to the classics. "Ladies of Gothic
Horror (A Collection of Classic Stories)" redresses this
imbalance by bringing together a selection of gothic
stories from the past written exclusively by women.
Carefully edited and compiled by author and anthologist
Mitzi Szereto, "Ladies of Gothic Horror" offers readers
plenty of good old-fashioned chills and thrills. Whether
youâ€™re a devotee of the genre, a literature lover, an
academic or a student, this volume of short fiction is sure
to please. The biographies accompanying each story will
show that these women were anything but typical for their
time. Includes seventeen stories from authors Mary Shelley,
Elizabeth Gaskell, Edith Wharton, Marjorie Bowen, Gertrude
Atherton, Virginia Woolf, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Elia W.
Peattie and many more.
