A collection of chilling stories from a writer whose horror fiction was a favorite of H. P. Lovecraft

Walter de la Mare wrote some of the finest traditional ghost stories in the English language. Although some of his classic stories have been frequently anthologized, many of them are hard to find outside scholarly collections. This new collection presents some of the best-loved stories alongside others that have been undeservedly neglected. De la Mare is revealed as an enigmatic writer of troubling stories that take unexpected turns into the supernatural.
