It was certainly true of Amelia Edwards whose collection of otherworldly fiction is highly regarded and . However, the two stories were definitely the best of the lot: Discovery Of the Treasure Isles, and The Phantom Coach. Treasure Isles" was nothing like Robert Louis Stevenson.

It was certainly true of Amelia Edwards whose collection of otherworldly fiction is highly regarded and extensive. After reading that novella, I figured it's more of a psychological rather than the supernatural. It may seem like one at first but it is entirely different altogether. The Phantom Coach" is, was, and always will be a classic.

It was certainly true of Amelia Edwards whose collection of otherworldly fiction is highly regarded and extensive, notwithstanding her many other talents. It is interesting that Edwards came into contact with another famous ghost story writer, Charles Dickens, as a consequence of providing articles, poetry and stories for his magazine, Household Words. Siete historias escritas entre 1864 y 1872 de Amelia B. Edwards, todas ellas de carácter sobrenatural, donde al aparición de un fantasma (o varios) suelen dar la clave de la resolución del misterio.

AMELIA B. EDWARDS, Mary E. Braddon, Charlotte Riddell, and Rhoda . The addition of a map showing the mythical Treasure Isles adds verisimilitude.

AMELIA B. Braddon, Charlotte Riddell, and Rhoda Broughton have always been held in high regard as the four greatest women writers of ghost stories during the mid-Victorian er. Amelia B. Edwards was one of the most remarkable women of the Victorian age. Besides being a popular novelist, poet, journalist, historian, and writer of ghost stories, she was also one of the greatest travellers of the nineteenth century, and an archaeologist of world renown.

Amelia Ann Blanford Edwards was a famous English author and jourmalist. She was also known as traveller and Egyptologist. Amelia Ann Blanford Edwards (7 June 1831 – 15 April 1892) was an English novelist, journalist, traveller and Egyptologist. 1997X/?tag prabook0b-20. The events I am about to relate took place more than fifty years ago.

Monsieur Maurice, and other stories 1876. The phantom coach by Amelia B. Edwards ; adapted by . Richardson, illustrated by Hal Ashmead. Contains the stories Monsieur Maurice. EDWARDS is acknowledged as one of the best of Victorian ghost story writers. THE PHANTOM COACH is the first time that all of Amelia B. Edwards's supernatural fiction has been collected in one volume. She was one of the select band of authors who was invited by Charles Dickens to contribute ghost stories to the Christmas numbers of his magazine ALL THE YEAR ROUND, and some of her tales-such as 'The Four-fifteen Express', 'Number Three', 'My Brother's Ghost Story', and the highly influential 'The Phantom Coach'-have become. staples of ghost story anthologies.

Twenty tales from beyond the veil from a mistress of the strange and other worldlyIt is widely held that many of the finest writers of the classic ghostly and macabre story were women. Some would propose that this remains true among modern exponents of the craft. It was certainly true of Amelia Edwards whose collection of otherworldly fiction is highly regarded and extensive, notwithstanding her many other talents. It is interesting that Edwards came into contact with another famous ghost story writer, Charles Dickens, as a consequence of providing articles, poetry and stories for his magazine, Household Words. Whether by coincidence or design Edwards' literary style was so similar to Dickens' as to cause confusion as to the identity of the actual author of some stories. Whilst this will please Dickens aficionados, Edwards own work stands on its own merits as a fine collection of Victorian gothic tales. In later life Edwards became an Egyptologist and was responsible for the preservation of many priceless monuments and artefacts. Available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket. Leonaur hard covers make fine collectors editions featuring real cloth bindings, taped head and tail bands and gold foil lettering upon their spines.
  • Excellent read for those that enjoy old supernatural stories, without the violence & gore of modern stories.

  • Few writers could rival that of Amelia B. Edwards. In my opinion, she's definitely the better of the lot. She's written other stories for the mystery/suspense/gothic genre which were her weakest. Yet her strength is in the ghost story form. She could be subtle when she wished. Convey a certain dark menace. But her real strength is mostly characterization, even in a short form. She's also perfectly capable of creating suspense that could very well rival that of Hitchcock with a touch of the supernatural. (Night On the Borders Of the Black Forest, for example.)

    Most of her ghost stories were a bit typical where a certain phantasm was seen wondering about, talking back to the protagonist, or merely pointing to where he/she died.

    However, the two stories were definitely the best of the lot: Discovery Of the Treasure Isles, and The Phantom Coach. "Treasure Isles" was nothing like Robert Louis Stevenson. After reading that novella, I figured it's more of a psychological rather than the supernatural. It may seem like one at first but it is entirely different altogether.

    "The Phantom Coach" is, was, and always will be a classic. It's been anthologized many times before. It is atmospheric. The dark menace near the end is very palpable. You'd do well not to accept rides from the phantom coach. The scariest is seeing three spectral passengers grin at you all at once.

    Definitely a thumbs up or stumps up. Heh.
