'" Compared in her day to Algernon Blackwood, Georgia Wood Pangborn was once a household name, in days when a new issue of a major monthly magazine filled the sort of home entertainment requirements that television fulfills today. But fame predicated on magazine appearances can be ephemeral, and after she mysteriously stopped writing, her fame evaporated, and her ghost and weird stories had never before this volume been collected into book form. Her mysterious disappearance was a family secret maintained throughout her two children's lives, in that she ended up permanently hospitalized for mental illness, which will be found as a subject of several of these stories of women just released from or still incarcerated in madhouses. Her reputation as a leading American author of the severely macabre has slowly been reinstated. Augographed by the editor.
