All Souls’ Day, on November 2, is part of Hallowmas season, a Western Christian celebration that begins with Hallowe’en on October 31. The day is devoted to prayer and remembrance for the souls of the dead. Hugh Walpole’s collection of stories, All Souls’ Night, published in 1933, fits this theme well, as it is filled with tales of ghosts, haunted houses, and mysterious happenings. Not all the stories are scary or deal with the supernatural, but most are disconcerting in some way.
Sir Hugh Seymore Walpole (1884-1941) was a prolific writer, producing a large body of work that includes novels, short stories, plays and memoirs, and covering a variety of genres. At Faded Page, we have a substantial number of his works, listed in our Special Collection: Sir Hugh Walpole. Consider joining us to help fill out this collection and bring other public-domain books to our readers. For more information about how to volunteer, check out our companion site, Distributed Proofreaders Canada.
