Speaking on Ghost Stories from the Victorian to the Modern
Steve Keller - One of the oldest genres of literature includes the tales of the supernatural.
Mr. Keller has been a collector and a scholar in the field for 50 years, with special interest in
the ghost stories from the Victorian age through the early 20th century. Along with the charm and
escapism of tales from an earlier era ( note: Downton Abbey ) the nuance and inference of such tales
have engaged audiences with a taste for the truly chilling. From E.A. Poe to the somewhat lesser
known authors, such as M.R. James, Algernon Blackwood, E.F. Benson, and H.R. Wakefield; Keller
covers the subject in word and image.
