The Haunted Looking Glass is the late Edward Gorey's selection of his favorite tales of ghosts, ghouls, and grisly goings-on. It includes stories by Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins, M. R. James, W. W. Jacobs, and L. P. Hartley, among other masters of the fine art of making the flesh creep, all accompanied by Gorey's inimitable illustrations.
"A brilliant draftsman, Mr. Gorey has raised the crosshatch, a timeworn 19th century mannerism, into a timeless visual language….[His works] tickle the funny bone as they raise hair on the back of the neck." —The New York Times
"This delightfully eerie anthology…[is] a great entry into the warped sensibility that animated Gorey’s twisted genius." —Kirkus Reviews
