Comments: Mary Shelley hosts a tale by Edith Nesbit “Man-size in Marble”. Jack and Laura are a young married couple in love. They seek lodgings as in a place to live.
Now Jack does get Laura to write about ghost stories for a local paper.
Now as Halloween approaches you can feel the atmosphere set in. Something evil is approaching. The story is nicely set up yet the evil here is not presented as all that evil. When evil has its way it is a slow terror that is not all that scary or surprising.
The way the story is presented you can easily tell it is an old old ghost story. It was written in the 1800s. This was a simpler time and this story is written simply.
The art fits the time era beautifully.
The ghost of Mary Shelley makes for a wonderful narrator and having her monster that she created by her side is a nice touch.
So if you want a nice quiet tale of Victorian terror you in the right place.
