About this title:

Synopsis:

Entranced and terrified, the reader of The Other is swept up in the life of a Connecticut country town in the thirties—and in the fearful mysteries that slowly darken and overwhelm it.

Originally published in 1971, The Other is one of the most influential horror novels ever written. Its impeccable recreation of small-town life and its skillful handling of the theme of personality transference between thirteen-year-old twins led to widespread critical acclaim for the novel, which was successfully filmed from Thomas Tryon’s own screenplay.

This edition features original artwork by surrealist artist Harry O. Morris.

About the Author: Thomas Tryon was a noted actor before turning to novels. His first novel, The Other, was successfully filmed in 1972. Other novels include Harvest Home, Crowned Heads, and The Night of the Moonbow. He died in 1991. The Oxford Companion to English Literature describes Ramsey Campbell as "Britain's most respected living horror writer". He has been given more awards than any other writer in the field, including the Grand Master Award of the World Horror Convention and the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Horror Writers Association.
