aka Pierre Andrezel, Isak Dinesen

Under the pseudonym of Isak Dinesen, Karen Blixen, 1885-1962, wrote a number of collections of surprising, often complicated stories in the genre for which Karen Blixen herself invented the name "Gothic tales" in her American first edition. Her first book, Seven Gothic Tales was published in New York in 1934 in her own English version and was a great success, being published the same year in England and Sweden.
