In this case, I thought Edith Nesbit was a kids book author (like I thought Edith Wharton never wrote supernatural fiction). I'd never picked up any of her stuff until buying The Power of Darkness - Tales of Terror collection.
"..if I had said, 'Yes, even from the grave, my darling - from hell itself,come back, come back to me!'...I shrank from her - I feared her - I would not take her to my heart. And now she will not come to me any more."
Very pulpy and overwrought, but there is something in it, compelling me to read it twice in two days. Anyone else have a good story to recommend?
The Wordsworth editions are wonderful. I haven't picked up the Nesbit yet, but I recently received the Henry James ghost stories, and am happy to have his supernatural stories all tidy in one place.
We have been discussing the American author W.C. Morrow in another group. I thought I'd recommend his story "His Unconquerable Enemy" over here. While not a ghost story, it is one of the strangest and most grotesque stories I've read in quite a while. The story can be accessed online.
