New Authors and collections. A collection of new tales with brilliant new writers and lost souls from the darkest corners of literature and legend: Morrigan’s ravens in Celtic myth mingle with Dante’s infernal spirits and the work of John Milton. And with the dark fiction of William Hope Hodgson and Arthur Machen this promises to be a haunting, chilling read. Classic authors include: E.F. Benson, Ambrose Bierce, Mary Elizabeth Braddon, F. Marion Crawford, Dante, Charles Dickens, Amelia B. Edwards, Sheridan le Fanu, Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, W.F. Harvey, William Hope Hodgson, E.T.A Hoffmann, James Hogg, Washington Irving, Henry James, M.R. James, Jerome K. Jerome, Perceval Landon, Friedrich Laun, H.P. Lovecraft, Arthur Machen, Charles Maturin, E. Nesbit, Margaret Oliphant, Edgar Allan Poe, Walter Scott, Sarah Elizabeth Utterson, Edith Wharton, along with a retold tale from Ovid's Metamorphoses.
