Elia Peattie was a prolific American author, journalist and critic of the later 19th and early twentieth centuries. The young Elia was an avid reader and writer and although she left school at the age of fourteen, she was exceptionally talented. By her early twenties she was writing short stories for newspapers and soon became a journalist for the 'Chicago Tribune.' During her career she held a number of senior journalistic posts and wrote for many of the most prestigious American periodicals of the day. She wrote novels, non-fiction guides and travel books, which were well regarded, as well as books for younger readers. 'The Shape of Fear,' her only volume of short stories of the strange and ghostly has been augmented here, by several previously uncollected tales, to create a collection that includes such evocative titles as 'From the Loom of the Dead,' 'On the Northern Ice,' 'Story of an Obstinate Corpse,' 'Story of the Vanishing Patient,' 'The Angel With the Broom' and 'The Blood Apple.'
Also available in hardcover and paperback editions.
