During her lifetime Violet Paget, who wrote as Vernon Lee, was
referred to as 'the greatest of modern exponents of the
supernatural in fiction', and yet today she remains on the
periphery of the genre. This collection of her uniquely weird short
stories and dark fantasies proves why she was once considered among
the best of the genre, and why she deserves to return to those
ranks today. From modernised folk tales such as 'Marsyas in
Flanders' and 'The Legend of Madame Krasinska' to ingenious
psychological hauntings such as the titular 'A Phantom Lover' and
'A Wicked Voice', Lee's own voice is just as distinctive and
captivating - her weird imaginings just as freshly unsettling - as
in her fin-de-siecle heyday.
