Anthologies (as editor)

Rosemary Timperley edited five volumes in the popular Ghost Book series of short story anthologies. The first three books in the series were edited by Lady Cynthia Asquith and the fourth was edited by James Turner. Timperley took over as editor for volumes five to nine, for which she also wrote the introductions. Timperley was of course fascinated by the supernatural and her introductions offer some interesting insights. The books that Timperley edited were originally published by Barrie & Rockliff and later reprinted under the Pan Books imprint.
