More About This Title The Haunted Library


The Haunted Library is a new collection of classic ghost stories—many of which have never before been anthologized—from the golden age of the genre in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Each of these stories revolves around the arcane secrets and dark psychic traces to be found in libraries, museums and other treasure troves of hidden knowledge.


Tanya Kirk is lead curator of printed heritage collections at the British Library. She was co-curator of the exhibition Terror and Wonder (2014), a major survey of Gothic culture.
