First edition. Nisbet "wrote many short horror tales concerning malignant influences from the other world, 'more awful in their consequences to poor humanity than were the life-sucking vampires of olden times.' The best of Nisbet's horror stories are 'The Haunted Station,' 'The Phantom Model,' 'Delphine,' 'Marie St. Pierre,' and 'The Demon Spell' (with a Jack the Ripper theme). These can all be found in his collection THE HAUNTED STATION (1894)." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural. pp. 301-02.
