Summary
Fifteen more chilling tales of Yuletide terror, collected from rare Victorian periodicals Following the popularity of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol (1843), Victorian newspapers and magazines frequently featured ghost stories at Christmas time, and reading them by candlelight or the fireside became an annual tradition. This second volume of Victorian Christmas ghost stories contains fifteen tales, most of which have never been reprinted. They represent a mix of the diverse styles and themes common to Victorian ghost fiction and include works by once-popular authors like Grant Allen and Eliza Lynn Linton as well as contributions from anonymous or wholly forgotten writers. This volume also features a new introduction by Prof. Allen Grove. "At first I was aware only of a bluish, misty, phosphorescent light, and then a ghastly terror, that froze the very blood in my veins, seized me, for suddenly I saw rise up out of the inky darkness the form of a man—the eyes of a hideous red, fixed on mine with a look of hate ..." - Coulson Kernahan, "Haunted!" "As I stood in breathless horror, unable to stir a limb, the figure raised its arm, a skeleton hand emerged from the heavy folds of the cloak, and touched my elbow. A scorching pain shot through me, I uttered a shriek——" - Emily Arnold, "The Ghost of the Treasure-Chamber" "Again that shudder passed through his body, and again he unwillingly met the glance of those diabolical eyes upon the scroll. Horror of horrors! was the face alive, or was he going mad?" - Anonymous, "The Weird Violin" Contents: Albert Smith, "A Real Country Ghost Story" • Emily Arnold, "The Secret of the Treasure Chamber" • Theo Gift, "Number Two, Melrose Square" • Anonymous, "The Weird Violin" • E.

Summary
A debunker of all things paranormal, Professor Philip Goodman has devoted his life to exposing phony psychics and fraudulent supernatural shenanigans on his own television show. His skepticism is put to the test however, when he receives a file of three chilling, inexplicable cases. Even scarier, each of these macabre stories seems to have a sinister connection to Professor Goodman's own Ife. Will they make a believer of him yet?
