What is it that makes ghost stories such a popular genre? Since the Victorian age many writers tried their hand at it, and John Lanchester’s recent 'Coffin Liquor' (London Review of Books, 4 January 2018) shows the fascination continues. In addition to this one we shall look at some great examples such as Dickens’s The Signalman and Elizabeth Bowen’s The Demon Lover.
