Nineteenth-Century Short Stories by Women Reviews

"A fascinating read. Generously researched and encouragingly comprehensive, this collection looks at a key period in the development of the modern short story and highlights the role that women authors--many of them forgotten--played in the exploration of the form. The range of writers is impressive: gothic, romantic, fantastic, with remarkably modern, subversive voices breaking through."
-A. L. Kennedy
