It is too often accepted that during the nineteenth and early
twentieth centuries it was the male writers who developed and
pushed the boundaries of the weird tale, with women writers
following in their wake - but this is far from the truth. This new
anthology follows the instrumental contributions made by women
writers to the weird tale, and revives the lost authors of the
early pulp magazines along with the often overlooked work of more
familiar authors. See the darker side of The Secret Garden author
Frances Hodgson Burnett and the sensitively-drawn nightmares of
Marie Corelli and Violet Quirk. Hear the captivating voices of
Weird Tales magazine contributors Sophie Wenzel Ellis, Greye La
Spina and Margaret St Clair, and bow down to the sensational,
surreal and challenging writers who broke down the barriers of the
day. Featuring material never before republished, from the abyssal
depths of the British Library vaults.
