About this Item

Pangborn, Georgia Wood: THE WIND AT MIDNIGHT: COMPLETE GHOST STORIES. British Columbia: Ash-Tree Press, 1999. First Edition, hardcover, As New in dust jacket, limited to 500 copies. Never before collected ghost stories by the mother of science fiction writers Mary and Edgar Pangborn. Edited, with Introduction by Jessica Amanda Salmonson. Preface by Patricia McKillip. The book is SIGNED by Jessica, whose introduction, "The Uncanny Stories of Georgia Wood Pangborn," can be read on line at her Violet Books web site for free. There's also a review to check out, by "rbadac," that focuses on a single short story, "Georgia Wood Pangborn's 'Bixby's Bridge.'" Compared in her day to Algernon Blackwood, Georgia Wood Pangborn was once a household name, in days when a new issue of a major monthly magazine filled the sort of home entertainment requirements that television fulfills today. But fame predicated on magazine appearances can be ephemeral, and after she mysteriously stopped writing, her fame evaporated, and her ghost and weird stories had never before this volume been collected into book form. Her mysterious disappearance was a family secret maintained throughout her two children's lives, in that she ended up permanently hospitalized for mental illness, which will be found as a subject of several of these stories of women just released from or still incarcerated in madhouses. Her reputation as a leading American author of the severely macabre has slowly been reinstated. Augographed by the editor. Bookseller Inventory # 2013
