Replete with Swan River’s customary ephemera. “The bestselling Irish author B. M. Croker enjoyed a highly successful literary career from 1880 until her death forty years later. Her novels were witty and fast moving, set mostly in India and her native Ireland. Titles such as Proper Pride (1882) and Diana Barrington (1888) found popularity for their mix of romantic drama and Anglo-Indian military life. And, like many late-Victorian authors, Croker also wrote ghost stories for magazines and Christmas annuals. From the colonial nightmares such as ‘The Dak Bungalow at Dakor’ and ‘The North Verandah’ to the more familiar streets of haunted London in ‘Number Ninety’, this collection showcases fifteen of B. M. Croker’s most effective supernatural tales.” #64248
