`The Vampyre' was first published in 1819 in the London New Monthly
Magazine. The present volume - a companion to Tales of Terror from
Blackwood's Magazine in World's Classics - selects thirteen other tales of
the macabre first published in the leading London and Dublin magazines
between 1819 and 1838. It includes Edward Bulwer's chilling account of the
doppelganger, Letitia Landon's elegant reworking of the Gothic romance,
William Carleton's terrifying description of an actual lynching, and James
Hogg's ghoulish exploitation of the cholera epidemic of 1831-2.
