The Phantom Coach: A Connoisseur’s Collection of Victorian Ghost Stories

by Michael Sims

Just the book for a rainy night when the wind is blowing branches against the windows. Settle down with a cup of tea and  leftover Halloween candy, and spend the evening with some Victorian ghosts. There are stories by authors you know, such as Charles Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Henry James as well as some by authors you should get to know: Elizabeth Gaskell, Margaret Oliphant, and Amelia Edwards.

The Victorians knew how to tell a ghost story!
