If changing leaves, creeping mist, and chill-laced evenings put you in the mood to be pricked with fright, we have the book for you. Ghosts by Gaslight: Stories of Steampunk and Supernatural Suspense brings together masters of the sublimely eerie in an atmospheric assortment of Victorian-inspired horror tales. Even the titles cast their spells: “Why I Was Hanged” (Gene Wolfe), “The Iron Shroud” (James Morrow), “The Proving of Smollett Standforth (Margo Lanagan), “The Unbearable Proximity of Mr. Dunn’s Balloons” (John Langan), and Peter S. Beagle’s exquisite “Music, When Soft Voices Die”. Dare to be scared with visitations by strange machines, seductive spirits, and grim obsession. We won’t blame you for keeping extra candles nearby.
