Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

Absorbing, entertaining, deliciously unnerving, this anthology by some of the greatest storytellers of the twentieth century is an irrestistible read for those with a taste for being spooked. 'A shivery treat' THE TIMES

Featuring stories by A.S. Byatt - Angela Carter - Lisa St Aubin de Teran - May Sinclair - Joan Aiken - Stella Gibbons - Edith Wharton - E.M. Delafield - Elizabeth Bowen - Ruth Rendell - and many more. This collection gathers together deliciously chilling tales from the three highly acclaimed volumes of Virago ghost stories. Here lost loves, past enmities and unwanted memories mingle with the inexplicable as unquiet souls return to repay kindnesses, settle scores and haunt the imagination. All of the writers demonstrate a subtle power to delight and chill at the same time as they explore the ghostly margins of the supernatural.
