The Collected Supernatural and Weird Fiction of Henry James : Volume 3-Including the Novella 'a Passionate Pilgrim, ' Eight Novelettes and One Short St
by Jr. Henry James




Overview -
Volume three-of four-of the ghostliest of Henry James' fiction

Henry James was a notable American author who lived and worked in England for forty years of his life-becoming a nationalised British subject shortly before his death. He is especially remembered for his portrayal of Americans abroad and for the creativity and freedom he displayed within his diverse literary perspectives. His novels remain highly regarded and continually read. Among them are Washington Square, The Bostonians, The Ambassadors and others. In any list of James' notable achievements one title frequently appears first-just as in every list of the most highly regarded supernatural fiction a James work is also certain to appear. That story is, of course, the novella, 'The Turn of the Screw'-a tale of creeping supernatural threat, terror, polluted innocence and inevitable tragedy. It is a deserved classic of supernatural fiction and true to the nature of such things subordinates James's other work in the genre almost to obscurity. Predictably a prolific author who had both a talent for and an interest in the fiction of the bizarre and ghostly would be unlikely to venture into its shadowy realms but once. This special Leonaur collection of Henry James' supernatural fiction fills four substantial volumes for modern readers to relish. A veritable literary feast is in store for those who dare to venture within its pages.
This penultimate volume-available in soft cover and cloth bound hardcover with dust jacket-leads off with the novella 'The Passionate Pilgrim.' Among the other tales are eight novelettes including 'The Ghostly Rental, ' 'The Next Time' and 'Nona Vincent' as well as the short story 'Collaboration.'
