Doctor Grimshawe's Secret: A Romance. by Nathaniel Hawthorne (Hardcover)
By Nathaniel Hawthorne. xiii+368p. 1883.
This is Nathaniel Hawthorne's last tale - an old legend, a ghost, and an English estate. It was published posthumously and edited by his son. It is something of a gothic tale, set in New England and England early in the 19th century. Hawthorne's portrayal of the archetypal mad scientist gives a minor science fiction theme to this romance.
