Sarob Press is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of …

Rosa Mulholland: Not to be Taken at Bed-Time & Other Strange Stories
Edited & Introduced by Richard Dalby

In the late nineteenth century Rosa Mulholland achieved great popularity and acclaim for her many novels, several of which chronicled the lives of the Irish poor. These novels, notably The Wicked Woods of Toberevil (1872), incorporated weird elements of Irish folklore. She became one of the select band of authors employed by Charles Dickens to write stories for his popular magazine All the Year Round, together with Wilkie Collins, Elizabeth Gaskell, Hesba Stretton and Amelia B. Edwards. Her best seven supernatural and weird short stories have never been gathered together in one volume before, and this collection seeks to remedy the gap to celebrate this gifted late Victorian ‘Mistress of the Macabre’.
Content: “Introduction” “Not to be Taken at Bed-Time” “The Ghost at the Rath” “The Haunted Organist of Hurly Burly” “The Mystery of Ora” “A Strange Love Story” “The Ghost at Wildwood Chase” “The Lady Tantivy”

I have less than 20 copies left of The Ghosts & Scholars Book of Shadows and don't expect these to be around very long. If you're still undecided then on-line reviews can be found at :
Watch this space over the next week or so as I'm almost ready to announce our next title.
Cheers, Robert.
