The Anthology Of Australian Colonial Gothic Fiction

Ken Gelder, Rachael Weaver
A unique collection of intriguing stories and fantastical yarns that vividly portrays colonial Australia and its hauntings.
Grisly corpses, ghostly women and psychotic station-owners populate an unforgiving landscape that is the stuff of nightmares. These compelling stories are the dark underside to the usual story of colonial progress, promise and nation-building, and reveal the gothic imagination that lies at the heart of Australian fiction.
This anthology collects the best examples of colonial Australian gothic short stories by authors such as Marcus Clarke, Hume Nisbet, Henry Lawson and Katherine Susannah Prichard, among others.
