Fox Editing Classics presents this newlly edited and designed publication of Elizabeth Gaskell's short story collection.

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell (1810-1865), while better known for her 1857 biography of Charlotte Brontë and her still-popular novels, such as Cranford (1851-1853) and Wives and Daughters (1864-1866), her literary works also included several Gothic ghost stories.
