Description
"Everything wonderful and horrible in Victorian literature owes something to Charles John Huffam Dickens," begins Cate Ludlow's introduction to this grisly almanac of dreadful events. Indeed, the man who invented Tiny Tim and David Copperfield (and, admittedly, Magwitch and Bill Sykes) contributed a monthly supplement of grisly true tales to his own weekly magazine, Household Words, from which this compendium is taken. From a "Murder Long Concealed" in Kilkenny on New Year's Day to another murder (this time in Paris) on the 31st of December, here is a horror for every day of the year (including February 29th): dens of thieves and shipwrecks, murders and suicides, railway disasters and explosions, plus rats, a tiger attack, and a girl nearly killed by a Christmas tree. (Murophobes may well wish to avoid the entries for February 9th and March 7th.) Cheers!
