Various Authors: Tom Tiddler's Ground. v1. 20 May 2015
Charles Dickens' journals Household Words and All the Year Round had Extra Christmas Numbers each year, and several of these contained stories co-authored by Dickens and staff writers who shared his social activism. Some of the chapters were later published separately in other versions, but this edition contains the original text from the journals.
A list of the collaborations between Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins is available on the Victorian Web site, and the text of every journal is available on the Dickens Journals Online site.
Tom Tiddler's Ground was the All The Year Round Extra Christmas Number for 1861, and was co-authored by Charles Dickens; Charles Allston Collins, Wilkie Collins' younger brother and Dickens' son-in-law; Wilkie Collins; Amelia B. Edwards, an author and Egyptologist; and John (Berwick) Harwood, a prolific writer of novels and horror stories.
The Tom Tiddler of the story is a young man who has made himself a hermit. Mr Traveller appoints himself to ask several people to tell Tom stories of their lives in the hope that he will change his ways.
The source was text files from the Dickens Journals Online site, checked against the images of the original journal pages. I have silently corrected typos and inconsistencies, set off documents as blockquotes, italicised the names of ships, and made changes to spelling and hyphenation using oxforddictionaries.com.
