Children of the night - what screams they make! This volume of previously uncollected fiction from 'Britain's prince of Chill' contains nineteen tales of fantasy and the supematural from the past four decades, including four brand-new stories and an original afterword appearing here for the very first time. In these masterful tales of horror and humour, the mostly young protagonists encounter bizarre and unusual creatures of various shapes and sizes: some frightening, some funny, some sad - but all entertaining. From such masterful monsters as the Hoppity-Jump, The Slippity-Slop, The Gale-Wuggle, The Tele-mon, The Wind-billie and The Mudadora, to classic frighteners like the ghoul, the werewolf, Frankenstein's Creature and Count Dracula himself, this last collection stands a fitting tribute to a writer who shared his unique world of frights and fancies with a long and loyal readership. As R. Chetwynd-Hayes would say: 'I wish you monstrous good reading'.
