“The Ghost Stories of Charles Dickens” is a collection of thirteen of Charles Dickens’s best ghost stories, including his famous “The Haunted Man and the Ghost’s Bargain”. A fantastic teller of macabre tales, Dickens presents his full gothic talents in this chilling collection. The stories include: “The Gift Diffused”, “The Gift Reversed”, “A Child’s Dream of a Star”, “Christmas Ghosts”, “To be Read at Dusk”, “The Ghost Chamber”, “Mr Testator’s Visitation”, and more. Charles John Huffam Dickens (1812–1870) was an English writer and social critic famous for having created some of the world’s most well-known fictional characters. His works became unprecedentedly popular during his life, and today he is commonly regarded as the greatest Victorian-era novelist. Although perhaps better known for such works as “Great Expectations” and “A Christmas Carol”, Dickens first gained success with the 1836 serial publication of “The Pickwick Papers”, which turned him almost overnight into an international literary celebrity thanks to his humour, satire, and astute observations concerning society and character. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
