About this title


This 1931 volume was the third collection of stories by Wakefield within four years. An extremely rare book, it contains thirteen stories, seven of which are supernatural, and which include such classic weird tales as Frontier Guards', Day-Dream in Macedon', and Damp Sheets'. In addition to the introduction by Barbara Roden, and a jacket illustration by Paul Lowe, the volume contains a bibliographical afterword by Jack Adrian, in which he discusses Wakefield's fictional output, early editions of his work, and a very puzzling question: if, as the author states, he had more than one hundred ghost stories published during his life, where are the other thirty stories, never collected in any of his books and never traced to any magazines or newspapers? An Ash-Tree Press Limited Edition.
