Dickens, Charles: Christmas Stories. v3, 15 Mar 2008

Hand-crafted from Harry T’s beautifully illustrated and carefully formatted .prc version.

Please note that the filename ending in '_1200.imp' is for the REB 1200. The other .imp is for the EBW 1150.

Quote:
Dickens' "Christmas Stories" (not to be confused with "Christmas Books", which is a separate upload) is a collection of short stories, published in the Christmas edition of his weekly magazine Household Words and its successor, All the Year Round, between the years 1850 and 1867. As such, they belong to Dickens' maturity and middle age, and are very different to his youthful "Sketches by Boz".

The stories differ enormously in style, from lighthearted ghost stories to biting social commentary. A number of them were written in collaboration with Wilkie Collins (author of "The Moonstone", "The Woman in White", etc etc), an arrangement which Dickens found practical, but difficult to work with - his writing style did not fit naturally with the elaborate plots of which Collins was a master.

This is a book it's best to "dip into" rather than read from start to finish.

The stories contained herein are:

- A Christmas Tree
- What Christmas Is As We Grow Older
- The Poor Relation's Story
- The Child's Story
- The Schoolboy's Story
- Nobody's Story
- The Seven Poor Travellers
- The Holly-Tree
- The Wreck of the Golden Mary
- The Perils of Certain English Prisoners
- Going Into Society
- The Haunted House
- A Message From the Sea
- Tom Tiddle's Ground
- Somebody's Luggage
- Mrs. Lirriper's Lodgings
- Mrs. Lirriper's Legacy
- Doctor Marigold
- Mugby Junction
- No Thoroughfare
- The Lazy Tour of Two Idle Apprentices

Note that these are the original forms of the stories; one often finds excerpts from them published as "standalone" stories. Eg, "Mugby Junction" contains a very famous ghost story called "The Signal-Man" which is often published on its own. and "Doctor Marigold" contains a similar story often published as "The Murder Trial".

As always, enjoy, and comments are welcome!
EDIT: 15 Mar 08

Corrected a problem with paragraph breaks in the first six stories in the collection. Now (finally, and long overdue) made into a proper MobiPocket book. Uploaded v3.
