From The Pickwick Papers in 1836 to the unfinished Mystery of Edwin Drood in 1870, Dickens wrote 15 novels, as well as huge numbers of novellas — most famously A Christmas Carol, in 1843 — short stories and magazine articles, many of which have a ghostly presence, reflecting contemporary fashions.

"Dickens is a fantastic gateway to many different aspects of life and culture of his time," Frankie Kubicki, senior curator at the Charles Dickens Museum, says.
