Painted Devils

Strange Stories
A collection of stories by

Eight weird tales & ghost stories of the first order of excellence. The erotic horror of "The View" is all the more disturbing because a reader might so easily understand how the narrator could submit himself to the situation. In "Ringing the Changes, " the sound of village churchbells is not so quaint, since the sound of it raises the kirkyard dead. Every story is profoundly good. The author was the grandson of Richard Marsh, author of the classic horror novel The Beetle second in its day only to Dracula in popularity -- so it would seem a dark imagination ran in the clan.
