Summary At 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. Through the traditional Gothic repertoire of ghosts, insanity, obsession, retribution and terror, this collection conveys the turbulence and dissonance of life in Russia in these years.
