An Announcement: The Victorian Book of the Dead

death writing obit  1908

That morbid person over at Haunted Ohio wishes to intimate that she has a new book to be published in September called The Victorian Book of the Dead.  One may read some copy from the back of the cover here, including a list of sample stories, both comical and grewsome. There is also a lurid table of contents.

Mrs Daffodil will send a wreath.
