As a schoolboy, Charles Dickens took a copy of the Terrific Register every week, and he later recalled how it 'frightened my very wits out of my head, for the small charge of a penny weekly.'This selection contains all the finest ghost stories from this 185-year-old publication, many of which have not appeared in print since Dickens read them. With countless reports of apparitions and premonitions of all kinds, extraordinary instances of second sight and visitations from spirits predicting fortunes, deaths and dreadful disasters, it will chill all but the sturdiest of hearts. Richly illustrated with original woodcuts, this book will fascinate all lovers of a good ghost story. Enthusiasts of the darker and more fantastical side of history will find them an absolute delight. Reviewed in Your Familiy Tree Magazine, Feb 2010 issue.
