Weird Women Volume 2: Classic Supernatural Fiction by Groundbreaking Female Writers 1840-1925 edited by Lisa Morton and Leslie S. Klinger
Hardcover – Pegasus Books – Sep 2021 – 323 pages
Following the success of their acclaimed Weird Women, star anthologists Lisa Morton and Leslie S. Klinger return with another offering of overlooked masterworks from early female horror writers.
This volume once again gathers some of the most famous voices of literature – George Eliot, Zora Neale Hurston, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Edith Wharton – along with chilling tales by writers who were among the bestselling and most critically-praised authors of the early supernatural story, including Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Vernon Lee, Florence Marryat, and Margaret Oliphant.
There are, of course, ghost stories here, but also tales of vampirism, mesmerism, witches, haunted India, demonic entities, and journeys into the afterlife.
