Horror, Gothic and 'speculative fiction' would not be what it is today without the women who invented it and their many successors. This anthology introduces you to more than one hundred authors and over two hundred of their stories, and includes familiar names like Mary Shelley, Anne Rice and Shirley Jackson, as well as forgotten pioneers like the inventor of Science-Fiction,  Margaret Cavendish. Women have always been at the vanguard of convention defying literature and this comprehensive guide offers a great introduction to them and their tales.
