Hugh Lamb has spent over forty years delving into weird fiction. Tired of anthologies reprinting the same old stories, he tried his hand at editing his own. His main area of research is Victorian ghost stories and he has published five anthologies of these: Victorian Tales of Terror, Terror by Gaslight, Victorian Nightmares, Tales from a Gaslit Graveyard, and Gaslit Nightmares. A freelance journalist by profession, Hugh Lamb lives in Sutton, Surrey.
`I have many anthologies of horror stories,and think of myself as quite an expert. Yet when I acquired this book I was astonished to find a writer I had never heard of before,who writes as well as Wilkie Collins or Algernon Blackwood ... these stories stand up really well today, and I for one am delighted to have found them at last.'
