Fantasmagoriana Deluxe by Eric J. Guignard & Leslie S. Klinger &  digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

First published in 1812, Fantasmagoriana has become one of the most seminal ghost-story anthologies of all time.

Originally collected as a French translation of eight German-language tales, Fantasmagoriana famously led to the creation of such works as the horror-classic novel Frankenstein, the short story "The Vampyre" (a progenitor to the fantasy vampire genre), the novella "Ernestus Berchtold; or, The Modern Oedipus," the poem "Manfred," and more.

In 1813, the anthology was partially translated into English as Tales of the Dead, excluding three of the original stories while adding in one new, and inspiring an even wider audience to delight in stories of the ghostly and macabre.

Now, for the first time, both Fantasmagoriana and Tales of the Dead have been combined with all stories into one English-language volume, in this beautifully presented showcase by Dark Moon Books!

Also included within are:

• Original English translations by Anna Ziegelhof

• Introduction by award-winning author Lisa Morton

• Annotations by noted literary editor Leslie S. Klinger

• Illustrations, biographies, reading list, and more! 

Open yourself to Fantasmagoriana Deluxe, and to all that is weird, ghostly, and wonderous.
