Three phantoms wander across the desert; a ghostly lover claims his bride at an outback station; a dead man appears beside a blood-red waterhole; a `new hand' jackaroo witnesses a ghostly struggle; a frightful monster haunts the Nullarbor Plains. Featuring the work of many well-known Australian writers, such as Dal Stivens, Lucy Sussex, Barbara Baynton, and Marcus Clarke, this anthology of nineteenth and twentieth-century Australian ghost stories ranges from convict and bush tales to spiritualist and Aboriginal writings. The collection is arranged chronologically, and is preceded by a short introduction.Biografía del autor:

This anthology of Australian ghost stories - from the 1850s to the present - draws together a neglected but striking genre of fiction that works to remind those who recently settled this country how unsettled it actually is. New arrivals stumble across empty houses with ghostly occupants; lonely bushmen fantasise about ghostly women; Aborigines tell of bunyips, bugeens and 'living ghosts'; the bush is full of beckoning spectral images; and Death himself is seen prowling the streets. In these stories Australia becomes the 'down-underworld', a place where the departed will inevitably be resurrected in time, and where the dead continue to make their presence felt"---, ---this contains: Introduction by Ken Gelder; The Ghost Upon The Rail - short story by John Lang; The Illumined Grave - short story by Mary Fortune [as by W.
