9780857065506: The Collected Supernatural and Weird Fiction of F. Marion Crawford: Volume 2-Including Two Novels, 'Cecilia' and 'Khaled: A Tale of Arabia, ' and One

Volume two of a collection of supernatural and weird tales by a forgotten master of the gothic and occult

Although an American author, writer F(rancis) Marion Crawford was born in Northern Tuscany, the son of sculptor Thomas Crawford, he spent much of his life in the United States, living and working in Boston. His inherent sensitivity to Italy influenced much of his historical fiction. Indeed, in his novel 'Corleone,' Crawford became the first author to prominently feature the now very familiar theme of the Mafia in fiction. He also produced notable works of history concerned with the various ages of Italy. Travels in the East and the study of Sanskrit in India gave him a grounding in the oriental and an interest in the other worldly. Although the themes of supernatural and weird fiction are often believed to be expressed to best effect in the short story most of Crawford's literary output consisted of novels. Fortunately, several of these include distinctly fantastical themes. His comparatively small oeuvre of short ghost and horror tales is so finely crafted that they have become some of the most highly regarded examples of the form in the English language. M. R James considered some of them to be among the best supernatural stories written, with the chilling and claustrophobic 'The Upper Berth' being especially singled out for merit. Crawford's talent for this genre is so widely acknowledged that it has been rightly noted that the greatest shame was that he did not write more-praise indeed! This five volume Leonaur collection of Crawford's strange novels, novellas and short stories provides a superb and substantial collection by one of Americas finest nineteenth century authors.
Volume two of this special Leonaur collection of F. Marion Crawford's excursions into the literary world of the bizarre and ghostly begins with the novel 'Cecilia;' the second novel is 'Kahled: A Tale of Arabia,' a highly entertaining tale of a genie and rightly regarded as a classic of fantastic fiction. The book concludes with the incomparable 'The Upper Berth,' in which a passenger on a steamer is disappointed to discover he has has to share his cabin, but his feelings turn to horror as he begins to understand the true nature of his 'travelling companion'-supernatural fiction at its most exceptional.
Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
