Interest in supernatural phenomena was high during Charles Dickens’ lifetime.  He had always loved a good ghost story himself, particularly at Christmas time, and was open-minded, willing to accept, and indeed put to the test, the existence of spirits

His natural inclinations toward drama and the macabre made him a brilliant teller of ghost tales, and in the twenty stories presented here, which include his celebrated A Christmas Carol, the full range of his gothic talents can be seen

Chilling as some of these stories are, Dickens has managed to inject characteristically grotesque comedy as he writes  of revenge, insanity, pre-cognition and dream visions, he indulges also in some debunking of contemporary credulity

Stories include:

  • The Queer Chair
  • A Madman’s Manuscript
  • The Goblins who Stole a Sexton
  • The Ghosts of the Mail
  • The Baron of Grogzwig
  • A Christmas Carol
  • The Haunted Man and the Ghost’s Bargain
  • To be Read at Dusk
  • The Ghost in the Bride’s Chamber
  • The Haunted House
  • The Trial for Murder (to be taken with a grain of salt)
  • The Signalman
  • Christmas Ghosts
  • The Lawyer and the Ghost
  • Four Ghost Stories
  • The Portrait-Painter’s Story
  • Captain Murderer and the Devil’s Bargain
  • Mr Testator’s Visitation
  • A Child’s Dream of a Star
  • Well-Authenticated Rappings
