W. F. Harvey's complete weird stories, never before published in one collection, can now be yours with this brand-new edition specially optimised for Kindle.

Give yourself a good old-fashioned fright with fifty-four tortured tales of horror, the occult and the subconscious mind, including all Harvey's best-loved stories: 'The Beast with Five Fingers', 'August Heat', 'The Ankardyne Pew' and many more.

William Fryer Harvey, master storyteller of the Edwardian era, plumbs the darker recesses of the human psyche. In place of the clanking ghosts and marauding monsters served up by so many of his contemporaries, Harvey offers more subtle and chilling horrors, such as the man who stumbles upon a tombstone bearing his own name, complete with his dates of birth and death already engraved.

Nothing is ever quite as it seems in Harvey's warped version of reality, and every story springs a surprise - often a very nasty one indeed. Harvey challenges and confounds the reader with a cast of twisted, malevolent and just plain weird characters who inhabit a shadowy parallel world of premonitions, obsessions, evil secrets and murderous plots.

This Kindle edition has been carefully edited and formatted, and comes complete with an Introduction, an active Table of Contents and section markers to enable easy browsing and ensure a smooth, enjoyable reading experience.
