Since his first anthology, A TIDE OF TERROR: AN ANTHOLOGY OF RARE HORROR
STORIES, appeared in 1972, his books have included VICTORIAN TALES OF
TERROR, A WAVE OF FEAR, TWO VOLUMES OF THE STAR BOOK OF HORROR, TERROR BY
GASLIGHT (1975), THE TASTE OF FEAR, RETURN FROM THE GRAVE, VICTORIAN
NIGHTMARES, COLD FEAR: NEW TALES OF TERROR, FORGOTTEN TALES OF TERROR, THE

One of Britain’s most acclaimed editors of ghosts and gaslight terrors,
Hugh is renowned for unearthing many obscure tales by Victorian and
Edwardian writers, including a lost M.R. James story for his 1975
compilation THE THRILL OF HORROR: 22 TERRIFYING TALES. 

More recently, Dover Publications has been reprinting new and omnibus
editions of his anthologies, including TALES FROM A GAS-LIT GRAVEYARD,
GASLIT NIGHTMARES and GASLIT HORRORS. 

Hugh has also compiled individual collections by such authors of the
macabre as Erckmann-Chatrian, E. Nesbit, Jerome K. Jerome, Bernard Capes,
