Summary
This book features Gothic narratives, stories of the macabre, and supernatural tales that are infused with the shrewd and sardonic humor for which Jacobs is justifiably famous. The stories demonstrate his masterful instinct for weaving terror and suspense into scenes of ordinary everyday life
