About the Author

GRAHAM LAW is Professor in Media Studies at Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan. He is the author of Serializing Fiction in the Victorian Press (2000) and editor of the Wilkie Collins Society Journal. ANDREW MAUNDER is Lecturer in English at the University of Hertfordshire, UK. He is the author of Bram Stoker (2006) and the editor of the series Varieties of Women's Sensation Fiction (2005).


"Combining original scholarship on Collins's negotiation of the Victorian literary marketplace with lively readings of his fiction that also give a clear sense of recent trends both in Collins criticism and work on nineteenth-century popular fiction, the book serves equally well as an introduction to or an update on Collins and his literary and cultural contexts." - Lyn Pykett, Aberystwyth University
