E Nesbit was one of the great British Edwardian storytellers, whom we now remember most for her children's novels. But she wrote ghost stories prolifically for adults, her imagination focused on the detail of the domestic to draw out horror, chills and delight.

Revel in the dark side of Victorian and Edwardian England, where visiting a house of strangers becomes a trial of nerve, and rediscovering the past leads you into strange and terrifying places. Melissa Edmundson, a noted authority on supernatural writing from this period and the curator of Women's Weird and Women's Weird 2, has selected the best of E Nesbit's short scary fiction for this new Handheld Classic.
