Read full description of the books:In "Staunton's Dinner," Vane Staunton returns after an absence of many years and hosts a dinner for his former friends. But they are horrified to find that he is terribly changed and now appears to possess awful powers, including the power to kill a man with only a thought! In the curiously homoerotic "A Knight of the Road," set in 17th century England, a handsome but cold-blooded stranger shows up in a lonely village and just might be the Devil himself! The darkly comical "The Disappearance of Mrs. Macrecham" recounts the strange adventures of Hereward Waller, who finds himself in an awkward predicament when he believes he has turned his landlady into a cat. And in "The Ring," Pugh and Tress from Marsh's earlier collection "Curios" reprise their roles as they seek to solve the mystery of an apparently cursed 16th century ring.
The twelve stories in this volume showcase Marsh's diverse talents and include tales of ghosts, crime, and the occult. As always, the tales are told with Marsh's characteristic blend of horror, mystery, and humour.
This edition includes the unabridged text of Marsh's story collection, taken from the exceedingly rare first edition published by Methuen in 1901. Also featured is a reproduction of the original cover.
Read information about the authorRichard Marsh (October 12, 1857–August 9, 1915) was the pseudonym of the British author born Richard Bernard Heldmann. He is best known for his supernatural thriller The Beetle: A Mystery, which was published in the same year as Bram Stoker's Dracula and was initially even more popular. The Beetle remained in print until 1960, and was subsequently resurrected in 2004 and 2007. Heldman was educated at Eton and Oxford University. He began to publish short stories, mostly adventure tales, as "Bernard Heldmann," before adopting the name "Richard Marsh" in 1893. Several of the prolific Marsh's novels were published posthumously.
