First published in 1901, Barry Pain's collection of short stories plays deftly with an array of supernatural and macabre ideas - the Roman soldier who encounters a nameless horror when he falls through a crack in the earth; ordinary people driven mad by their obsession with other people's crimes; the wife who haunts her husband via a ghostly telephone line. Perhaps most memorable of all, however, is the unsettling tale of 'The Undying Thing', which has all the hallmarks of a classic werewolf story. This vintage collection is sure to delight all fans of classic horror.
