As is the case with most of the Christmas stories, the work actually a collaborative effort, though marketed under Dickens' very salable name:  Chapters I & VII by Dickens (per VanderPoel, & confirmed by Oppenlander);  Chapter II by Elizabeth Gaskell (states Oppenlander, even though Gaskell "swore" not to write for ATYR);  Chapter III by Andrew Halliday;  Chapter IV by Edmund Yates;  Chapter V by Amelia Edwards;  & Chapter VI by Charles A. Collins (Dickens' son-in-law & the individual initially chosen to illustrate Drood).
