Description

The Victorian era was a golden age of the paranormal. Famous writers, such as Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe, created fantastic tales that remain the models for contemporary ghost stories. As the interest in the paranormal grew, body-snatchers stole corpses from cemeteries and scientists tried to reanimate them, reflecting a society on the brink of madness. Join bestselling author Jo-Anne Christensen as she explores the most bizarre and remarkable stories from this fascinating era of haunted history.

About the author

As a child, A.S. Mott didn't like to play outside. Born with the nocturnal instincts of a vampire, Mott preferred the dark confines of his parents' basement. There he fed not on the blood of others but on a steady diet of scary movies and the most frightening books he could find. It is, therefore, hardly surprising that this enemy of sunlight would choose to write about the supernatural.Mott cites among his current influences such writers as Martin Amis, Stephen King and Joss Whedon (creator of the TV cult classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Mott still can be found spending most of his time in the dark, either watching another cheesy horror movie or working on his latest book.
