Publisher's Summary

Fascinated by the supernatural, Charles Dickens had a passion for the macabre and the afterlife that spawned a fascinating collection of short ghost stories.

Dickens' unique blend of fantastic credibility and paranormal absurdity made his form of ghost story an instant success - one that keeps on chilling our spines nearly 200 years later.

Volume 1: 'The Ghost in the Bride's Chamber', 'The Lawyer and the Ghost', 'The Goblins Who Stole a Sexton', 'The Trial for Murder', 'Four Ghost Stories', 'A Madman's Manuscript'.

Charles Dickens was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era and created some of English literature's most iconic characters, including Oliver Twist, Ebenezer Scrooge, and David Copperfield.

About the reader: Phil Reynolds is an experienced stage actor. Recent credits include Lt. Sam Weinberg in A Few Good Men and Freddy in Steve Martin's Picasso at the Lapin Agile. Recent film projects include So What? and The Limes (a story set in the cutthroat world of ice cream men, inspired by Shakespeare's Hamlet).

Phil can also be heard on several computer games, theme park rides and guided tours!

Excellent ghost stories

Dickens' use of diction is beautiful and phenomenal, and the narration is top notch. The stories aren't chilling or creepy, but they are quite cunning! I recommend this book with my whole heart.
