Wilkie Collins was a prolific writer of short stories. Always original, his combination of cleverly constructed plots and believable characters has made him one of our most widely read authors. 

In “The Dead Hand,” a visitor to Doncaster in race week is forced by circumstances to spend the night at an inauspicious inn, while an evening at a Paris gambling house ends in near tragedy for the narrator in “A Terribly Strange Bed,” and in “The Dream Woman,” a nightmarish apparition exerts a sinister blight on a man’s life. 

This collection is read for you by Richard Mitchley, who has worked in theater throughout Britain,  and Ian Holm, one of England’s finest actors.

About the Author
Author Wilkie Collins

Wilkie Collins (1824–1889) studied law and was admitted to the bar but never practiced. Instead, he devoted his time to writing and is best known for his novels The Woman in White, No Name, Armadale, and The Moonstone, which has been called the finest detective story ever written. A number of his works were collaborations with his close friend, Charles Dickens. The Woman in White so gripped the imagination of the world that Wilkie Collins had his own tombstone inscribed: “Author of The Woman in White.”
