       Additional Information  
     
      In this anthology we see a dozen fine examples of Gothic literature, spanning over one hundred and fifty years from Mary Shelley and Charles Maturin, through to an unexpected master of the macabre, Gerald Durrell. All feature sinister settings of castles and ancient houses, with the protagonists haunted by the tyranny of the past, and physically or spiritually incarcerated by their circumstances. Designed to provide an overview of the genre, and offering a balance of classic and more unusual stories, this is a book that will appeal to both the newcomer and dedicated collector of Gothic fiction.
