From the once-popular yet unfairly neglected Victorian writer Charlotte Riddell comes a pair of novels which cleverly upholster the familiar furniture of the haunted house story.

In An Uninhabited House, the hauntings are seen through the perspective of the solicitors who hold the deed of the property. What happens when the world of commerce and law meets the supernatural? 

In Fairy Water, Riddell suggests a complex moral character for her haunting spirit. Her succinct, witty writing style renders the story a spirited and approachable read despite its age.
Charlotte Riddell (1832-1906) was a popular writer of novels and short stories in the Victorian period. Andrew Smith is the author of The Ghost Story 1840-1920: A Cultural History and the editor of Lost in a Pyramid & Other Classic Mummy Stories.
