Mugby Junction


Charles Dickens’ Mugby Junction is a compilation of short stories whose events happen mostly round a Victorian railway station. The work was written in 1866 and originally published in its entirety in the All The Year Round magazine. The most famous short story included in the volume is &quote;The Signalman.&quote; The latter is the story of a railway signalman who works in a somehow isolated cutting and who is regularly visited by the narrator of the story. On more than one occasion, the couple sit and chat when the signalman eventually decides to reveal his secret and speak to his visitor about his job’s hardships and mainly about a strange apparition that keeps on haunting the area. Following every visit by the ghost, he explains that there must happen a catastrophe in the region. The narrator, who does not seem to believe in such supernatural apparitions and who suspects the signalman of some psychological troubles, comes to go through the same experience himself. Other short stories in the compilation also follow events happening round train stations. They include &quote;Barbox Brothers,&quote; &quote;Barbox Brothers and Co,&quote; and &quote;The Boy at Mugby.&quote;

Charles Dickens – On London


The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel. But it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. In this series we look at short stories from many of our most accomplished writers. Miniature masterpieces with a lot to say. In this volume we examine some of the stories Charles Dickens wrote about London, A City of Empire and ambition with a dark underside. Dickens is a name that dominates the landscape of English novelists. His works are masterpieces and he is held everywhere in the highest regard. In his fairly short life of 58 years he accomplished an extraordinary number of classic novels, especially in light of his humble and poor beginnings. Here in this collection of stories his hand and mind are everywhere within their short length proving once again that Dickens could master almost any form of writing.

Hunted Down: the detective stories of Charles Dickens


pubOne.info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. Most of us see some romances in life. In my capacity as Chief Manager of a Life Assurance Office, I think I have within the last thirty years seen more romances than the generality of men, however unpromising the opportunity may, at first sight, seem.

Haunting (NHB Modern Plays)


A spine-chilling play by Hugh Janes, based on several original ghost stories by Charles Dickens. In an ancient, crumbling mansion, sheltering from the howling winds that tear across the surrounding desolate moorland, two men stumble across a dark and terrifying secret that will change both of their lives. When a young book dealer, David Filde, is employed by a former associate of his uncle to catalogue a private library, he finds an incredible array of rare and antiquated books. But as a series of strange and unexplained events conspires to keep Filde from his work, he realises that if he is to convince his sceptical employer that the mysterious phenomena he is experiencing are real, they must journey together to the very edge of terror, and beyond… The play offers rich material for amateur theatre companies or student groups who want to introduce their audiences to another side of Dickens’ work — and have them jump out of their seats at the same time. ‘The Haunting revels in the old-fashioned power of simple theatrical tricks, and basks in the shrieks and gasps of an audience that is clearly part of the event’- Scotsman ‘Great pace and terrific suspense… guaranteed to raise goosebumps’- Maidenhead Advertiser ‘Gripping… and fascinating too’- British Theatre Guide

Holiday Romance


pubOne.info thank you for your continued support and wish to present you this new edition. THIS beginning-part is not made out of anybody’s head, you know. It’s real. You must believe this beginning-part more than what comes after, else you won’t understand how what comes after came to be written. You must believe it all; but you must believe this most, please. I am the editor of it. Bob Redforth (he’s my cousin, and shaking the table on purpose) wanted to be the editor of it; but I said he shouldn’t because he couldn’t. HE has no idea of being an editor.
