Speaking on Ghost Stories from the Victorian to the Modern
Photo of Steve Keller
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.
