Shadows: Supernatural Tales by Masters of Modern Literature, edited by Robert Dunbar (and with an introduction by Dunbar) is out in softcover from Uninvited Books. The anthology features terrifying explorations of the dark by many of the great writers who revolutionized dark fiction. These may be the finest, most evocative ghost stories ever written.

You’ll find work by:

  • Virginia Woolf
  • D. H. Lawrence
  • E. M. Forster
  • Edith Wharton
  • Willa Cather
  • Henry James
  • Algernon Blackwood
  • Oliver Onions
  • Montague Rhodes James
  • and others

From the Introduction: “Abandoned houses seldom turn out to be as empty as they appear. Voices fade, but echoes linger in the dimness, and sometimes figures emerge from those shadows, if only in dreams. With styles gravitating toward the ambiguous and the existential, the artists who revolutionized Gothic horror did so by bringing it into the modern world, away from all those castle battlements and dreary moors, replacing superstitious dread with psychological sophistication.”
