Wilkie Collins was an extremely popular author of the Victorian era. Aside from his thirty novels, Collins penned a great amount of short stories across a number of genres. 'The Story of a Terribly Strange Bed' was first published in Charles Dickens's weekly literary journal Household Words. Many of the Gothic romance and horror stories, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
