About the Author: E.T.A. Hoffmann

Ernst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffmann, better known by his pen name E. T. A. Hoffmann (Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann), was a German Romantic author of fantasy and horror, a jurist, composer, music critic, draftsman and caricaturist. His stories form the basis of Jacques Offenbach's famous opera The Tales of Hoffmann, in which Hoffman appears (heavily fictionalized) as the hero. He is also the author of the novella The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, on which the famous ballet The Nutcracker is based. The ballet Coppélia is based on two other stories that Hoffmann wrote, while Schumann's Kreisleriana is based on Hoffmann's character Johannes Kreisler.

Hoffmann's stories were very influential during the 19th century, and he is one of the major authors of the Romantic movement.

Included in this second volume of the two-volume collection are "The Doge and Dogess," "Master Martin the Cooper," "Mademoiselle de Scuderi," "Gambler's Luck," "Master Johannes Wacht," and a long bibliographic essay from the translator, "Biographical Notes." E.T.A. Hoffmann was an enormous talent writing long before the market for weird fiction came into focus. One of the first great horror magazines -- Weird Tales -- stole the title of this two-volume collection without so much as a note of thanks! Anyway, if you like weird fiction (probably a better word for the genre than horror than horror), you'll love Hoffmann's Weird Tales."
