Elliott O'Donnell, Collection novels
by Elliott O'Donnell




Overview -
Elliott O'Donnell (1872 - 1965) was an author known primarily for his books about ghosts. He claimed to have seen a ghost, described as an elemental figured covered with spots, when he was five years old. He also claimed to have been strangled by a mysterious phantom in Dublin. He claimed descent from Irish chieftains of ancient times, including Niall of the Nine Hostages (the King Arthur of Irish folklore) and Red Hugh, who fought the English in the sixteenth century. In later life he became a ghost hunter, but first he traveled in America. He wrote several popular novels, including an occult fantasy, The Sorcery Club (1912) but specialized in what were claimed as true stories of ghosts and hauntings. These were immensely popular, but his flamboyant style and amazing stories suggest that he embroidered fact with a romantic flair for fiction. He became known as an authority on the supernatural. In this book: Scottish Ghost Stories, 1912 Animal Ghosts, 1913 The Sorcery Club, 1912 Werwolves, 1912 Byways of Ghost-Land, 1911 The Banshee, 1907
