Randalls Round

(1929)
A collection of stories by

 
RANDALLS ROUND, Eleanor Scott's only collection of supernatural stories, is one of the most rare and sought-after titles in the genre. For many years nothing was known about the author, who remained as shadowy and elusive as her book. Contemporaries, such as M. R. James and Montague Summers, remained silent about her collection.

More recently, however, details of her life have been tracked down; and now at last RANDALLS ROUND is published for a new generation of ghost story connoisseurs. In her Foreword to the volume, Scott tells how all nine stories had their origins in dreams, and hopes that they will have lost none of their power to terrify when translated to the printed page. She need not have worried. Stories such as 'Randalls Round', 'The Twelve Apostles', and 'At Simnel Acres Farm' are easily equivalent to anything written by such acknowledged masters as M. R. James and E. F. Benson; and in 'Celui-la', her tale of a nameless horror on a Breton beach, Scott has created a minor masterpiece of horror.
