The Face in the Glass : The Gothic Tales of Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Paperback / softback Book

The Face in the Glass : The Gothic Tales of Mary Elizabeth Braddon Paperback / softback

Edited by Greg Buzwell

Part of the British Library Tales of the Weird series

Description

A young girl whose love for her fiance continues even after her death; a sinister old lady with claw-like hands who cares little for the qualities of her companions provided they are young and full of life; and a haunted mirror that foretells of approaching death for those who gaze into its depths.

These are just some of the haunting tales gathered together in this macabre collection of short stories.

Reissued in the Tales of the Weird series and introduced by British Library curator Greg Buzwell, The Face in the Glass is the first selection of Mary Elizabeth Braddon's supernatural short stories to be widely available in more than 100 years.

By turns curious, sinister, haunting and terrifying, each tale explores the dark shadows beyond the rational world.
