The collected supernatural and weird fiction of Wilkie Collins, Volume 1
The first volume of this comprehensive collection
Wilkie Collins, author of 'The Moonstone' and 'The Woman in White' needs no introduction. He was considered the father of the detective story and his tales of mystery are well known and highly regarded. Collins also had a taste for the supernatural, the gothic and tales of terror, peculiarity and unease. All suited his style very well. This three volume Leonaur collection, available in softcover and hard cover with dustjacket, brings together what is, perhaps, an unprecedented collection of his writings in the supernatural and horror genres. This first volume contains the novel 'The Haunted Hotel' which combines mystery and the ghostly in the evocative setting of Venice, the novella 'Mad Monkton', and three novelettes and eight short stories including: 'Memoirs of an Adopted Son', 'My Black Mirror', 'Miss Jeromette and the Clergyman', 'Mr Percy and the Prophet', 'Nine O'Clock', 'The Siege of the Black Cottage', 'The Dream Woman', 'The Dead Hand', 'The Biter Bit', The Fatal Cradle' and 'The Dead Alive'.
