The Ghost Story 1840-1920: A Cultural History examines the British ghost story within the political contexts of the long nineteenth century. By relating the ghost story to economic, national, colonial and gendered contexts' it provides a critical re-evaluation of the period.

James. Additionally, a chapter on the interpretation of spirit messages reveals how issues relating to textual analysis were implicated within a language of the spectral. This book is the first full-length study of the British ghost story in over 30 years and it will be of interest to academics, graduate students and advanced undergraduates working on the Gothic, literary studies, historical studies, critical theory and cultural studies.

I was so excited. I was finally going to get to stay at the Claiborne Hotel. I had grown up in the San Francisco area, and the Clairborne Hotel had sat grandly on one of the highest hills in the city, looking out over the San Francisco Bay. As a kid I had always dreamed about what it would be like to live in a place like that, or even stay there for a few nights. The Clairborne had a storied history. It was built as a resort spa back in the late 1800s. I’m not sure who built the hotel, but I do know that at one time it was a hangout for the mob. They would send some of their old cronies over from back East to check into the hotel. There was a lot of talk that a number of them never checked out; at least not in the traditional way that is. Before I go on, I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Tony DeMarco. I’m named for my great grandfather. He was a colorful character in old San Francisco, and was reported to have been part of the syndicate that owned this very same hotel! My grandma always said I looked exactly like him. Find out what happens to Tony DeMarco when he spends a night in his grandfather’s hotel! Ages 9 and up. Educational Versions have exercises designed to meet Common Core standards.

ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 54 In Issue 54 of the Baba Indaba Children's Stories, Baba Indaba narrates an old English tale that occurred during the 1860’s. While the Manchester and Milford railway was being constructed (1860 – 1864), many a frugal farmer added to his earnings by boarding and lodging the navvies (labourers) who were constructing the line. Several of these sturdy workers stayed at a farm called Penderlwyngoch. One night when the moon was full, the dogs started barking, strangers were seen in the farmyard, footsteps were heard approaching and the door swung open…… This issue also has a "Where in the World - Look it Up" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story, on map. HINT - use Google maps. INCLUDES LINKS TO 8 FREE DOWNLOADS Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories". It is believed that folklore and tales are believed to have originated in India and made their way overland along the Silk and Spice routes and through Central Asia before arriving in Europe. Even so, this does not cover all folklore from all four corners of the world. Indeed folklore, legends and myths from Africa, Australia, Polynesia, and some from Asia too, are altogether quite different and seem to have originated on the whole from separate reservoirs of lore, legend and culture.

It is not so easy to tell why discredit should be cast upon a man because of something that his grandfather may have done amiss, but the world, which is never overnice in its discrimination as to where to lay the blame, is often pleased to make the innocent suffer in the place of the guilty. Barnaby True was a good, honest, biddable lad, as boys go, but yet he was not ever allowed altogether to forget that his grandfather had been that very famous pirate, Capt. William Brand, who, after so many marvelous adventures (if one may believe the catchpenny stories and ballads that were written about him), was murdered in Jamaica by Capt. John Malyoe, the commander of his own consort, the Adventure galley.

I got up and peered out the window. That’s when I saw it.

Helen Conrad-O'Briain

A Descendant of the fireside tale, the short story has never neglected the uncanny. Indeed, the development of the literary ghost story helped to make short fiction what it is today: a genre of the intuited rather than the known, compressed and fleeting in its nature. These studies of the literary ghost story cast a light on its subjects and its methods. Beginning with the ghost story of popular report and following the form into prints as the local expands to the global, these essays trace the movement from the almost palpable manifestations of traditional ghosts to the psychological terrors of the modern form. In this study of the ghostly genre, writers examined include both the familiar and the not-so expected; the works of, among others, M.R. James, Robert Aickman, Sheridan Le Fanu, Oscar Wilde, Robert Louis Stevenson, Henry James, Edith Wharton, Shirley Jackson, Edgar Allan Poe and Chuck Palahniuk, all feature.

Muham Dragon Taqra,Muham Taqra

300 years ago, in the province of Kai and the town of Aoyagi, there lived a man named Koharu Tomosaburo, of well-known ancestry. His grandfather had been a retainer of Ota Dokan, the founder of Yedo, and had committed suicide when his lord fell in battle. This brave clansman's grandson was Tomosaburo, who, when this story begins, had been happily married for many years to a woman of the same province and was the proud father of a son some ten years of age. At this time it happened, one day, that his wife fell suddenly ill and was unable to leave her bed. Physicians were called in but had to acknowledge themselves baffled by the curious symptoms of the patient: to relieve the paroxysms of pain from which she suffered, Moxa was applied and burned in certain spots down her back. But half a month passed by and the anxious household realised that there was no change for the better in the mysterious malady that was consuming her: day by day she seemed to lose ground and waste away. Tomosaburo was a kind husband and scarcely left her bedside: day and night he tenderly ministered to his stricken wife, and did all in his power to alleviate her condition. One evening, as he was sitting thus, worn out with the strain of nursing and anxiety, he fell into a doze. Suddenly there came a change in the light of the standing-lantern, it flushed a brilliant red, then flared up into the air to the height of at least three feet, and within the crimson pillar of flame there appeared the figure of a woman. Tomosaburo gazed in astonishment at the apparition, who thus addressed him: "Your anxiety concerning your wife's illness is well-known to me, therefore I have come to give you some good advice. The affliction with which she is visited is the punishment for some faults in her character. For this reason she is possessed of a devil. If you will obey me as a king and master, I will cast out the tormenting demon." Now Tomosaburo was a brave, strong-minded samurai, to whom the sensation of fear was totally unknown. And the story now will begin….. 5912515418394552088
