The final collection of fantastic stories and macabre tales from the pen of August Derleth demonstrates anew this author's mastery in the realm of the uncanny. Whether on the classic theme of the vengeful revenant or on a mind-bending concept of modern science fiction, few contemporary writers could equal the deceptively casual narrative style and unerring evocation of the eerie which distinguish these tales of wonder and strangeness. 'Dwellers in Darkness' also includes two of the macabre mystery stories featuring Judge Peck which were chosen by the author to conclude his final collection. Since this fictional sleuth also appeared in August Derleth's first book published in 1934, 'Murder Stalks the Wakely Family', his long and distinguished career as a scrivener of macabre fiction thus ends as it has begun, with Judge Ephraim Peabody Peck.
