Russian writers from Pushkin to Bulgakov and beyond have produced outstanding ghost stories, supernatural thrillers, and other tales of the uncanny. In the first decades of the 20th century the Gothic-fantastic genre flourished in Russia, despite official efforts to stamp it out. Few of these stories have been translated or published outside Russia. The collection includes 11 vintage tales by 7 writers of the period.

As a time of revolution and civil war, hardship and deprivation, the supernatural genres provided means for a number of Russian writers to explore the dark underside of the machine age and the new political order.

"..there is a dizzying range of tropes, motifs, settings, character archetypes, and emotions explored across these wonderfully bleak, suspenseful, frightening, absurd, comedic, engrossing page-turners. These are stories to remind us how gothic tales can be at one campy and absurd, while also making our skin crawl and our blood run cold. The stories in Red Spectres, time and again, allow us to experience both of these ends of the gothic spectrum, and everything in-between.

Reading Red Spectres is a joyous experience. And for fans of the gothic genre, and of the Russian authors of old, this book is an absolute goldmine.! A lost archive of rare tales, dug up, artfully translated into English and published...for our endless enjoyment."
