Charles Dickens (1812-70) was one of the greatest of all English novelists and remains a giant of world literature. Famed for major novels such as Oliver Twist (1837-38), David Copperfield (1850), Bleak House (1852-53) and Great Expectations (1860-61), Dickens was also a master of short fiction.

The five stories collected here encompass haunted railway lines, Christmas goblins, figures stepping out of nightmares, a child murderer, and an extraordinary encounter between a spectre and a canny lawyer.
