Edwards is acknowledged as one of the best of Victorian ghost story writers. She was one of the select band of authors who was invited by Charles Dickens to contribute ghost stories to the Christmas numbers of his magazine All The Year Round , and some of her tales - such as 'The Four-fifteen Express', 'Number Three', 'My Brother's Ghost Story', and the highly influential 'The Phantom Coach' - have become staples of ghost story anthologies.
