What an interesting collaboration! Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins, Elizabeth Gaskell and Adelaide Ann Procter ... apparently each of them wrote a chapter. There's no indication of who wrote which episode, although elsewhere I learned that Dickens and Collins wrote the first and last chapters together, and Gaskell "The Manchester Marriage," Dickens "Going into Society," Procter "Three Evenings in the House" and Collins "Trottle's Report." This tale first appeared in 1858 in the Christmas edition of Dickens' Household Words magazine.

An elderly woman comes to London and becomes obsessed with a seemingly long-empty house from which she believe she sees an eye looking out at her. To calm her agitation, she asks her friend and her butler to find out the history of the house, and the two men present her with a series of tales about the previous inhabitants.

Lots of fun!
