Welcome to a world of Victorian horrors and Edwardian terrors! In this episode we pay tribute to the great scholar and researcher of the macabre who sadly passed away last week. Hugh Lamb edited a great number of very influential horror anthologies and curated editions of macabre tales for the likes of E Nesbit and Robert W Chambers. He discovered lost and forgotten tales by masters such as MR James, Charles Dickens and Edgar Allen Poe, and rescued from obscurity dozens of long out of print weird tales, including several that I have read on the podcast in the past.
