In his introduction to this outstanding collection of stories, Ramsey Cambell writes, "The tale of supernatural terror is in danger of losing touch with its own traditions ". It is this tenet which caused him to gather together an anthology of such stories which have been unavailbale for so long that many were in danger of being lost for ever . To quote the editor ; " This is a book for people who love tales of the supernatural rather than of gross gruesomeness , or who would like to find out if they do".
