Elegant measured prose, powerful sense of unease and encroaching invisible presence
on 7 December 2017
A collection of tales which are creepy, atmospheric, full of subtle tension and building horror. I found myself comparing some of them to the masters of this genre, in a book I love, 'Classic Tales of the Macabre', which contains stories by such authors as Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Louis Stephenson, Bram Stoker and H.P. Lovecraft. Here within the pages of Vivienne Tuffnell's book, I found the same elegant measured prose, the same powerful sense of unease and encroaching, invisible presence. A superb collection of stories.
