Site of the Week: Dickens’ Ghost Stories

If you know of any useful websites or perhaps run one yourself, feel free to recommend it. If I find your site suitable for my weekly feature then I will do my utmost to accommodate it. In return I might merely ask that you link to my blog. But please (and I mean this in the politest possible terms) do not ask me to advertise your commercial service.

Nothing too profound or useful for this festive edition. Charles Dickens was known for writing a number of ghost stories, the most famous of which is obviously A Christmas Carol. But this wasn’t the only ghost story he wrote, nor indeed was it the only Christmas story he wrote.

Ghost stories at Christmas has been a bit of a tradition that has fizzled out a bit in recent years. The only tv dramas I can think of in recent years is Mark Gatiss’ Crooked House and last year’s BBC2 drama Whistle and I’ll Come to you.

Some Dickensian reading for this week then. Enjoy and have a wonderful Christmas!

As next week is Boxing Day, there won’t be a Site of the Week. I’ll probably skip 2nd January as well. See you in 2012!
