Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Within the broad field of contemporary literature, horror fiction has only recently developed into a genre which modern scholars may legitimately regard as being worthy of critical attention. This comparative study provides ample proof that horror fiction can be more profound and revealing than many literary critics imagined. The only study of its kind, this book offers detailed critical analysis of the child in horror fiction, with special emphasis on themes relating to the child's social position within the family and its war against parents or authority figures, as well as its various functions as victim, evil innocent, and monster. Special attention is given to the child's consistent, stylized portrayal in horror fiction, which forms a sharp contrast to the appearance of children both in other genres and in real life.

Inhaltsangabe: Ellen and Corey Streater agree to play roles in the Historical Society's Haunted House, and Ellen meets the ghost of Lydia Clayton and uncovers a robbery plot.
From the Publisher: It was a job any kid would kill for: to play a role in the Historical Society's Haunted House Halloween fundraising event. Ellen Streater was thrilled to play Joan of Arc, burning at the stake. It was for a good cause -- to benefit the eerie old Clayton House, soon to reopen as a museum. They said the house was haunted. Ellen didn't believe it -- until she felt a strange, icy feeling when she touched the beautiful Fairylustre bowl. Then she saw the ghost in the mirror -- a beautiful phantom who beckoned her into a nightmare beyond her wildest dreams.
