Unholy Relics

A collection of stories by

These tales are fictionand yet not fiction,' wrote M.P. Dare in his introduction to his only collection of ghost stories, published in 1947. They are all founded upon actual experiences of the author in the realms of the uncanny.' Dare is a uniquely original voice, and his stories are like no others: some set out to chill the blood, while others are fantastic or humorous. This edition contains all thirteen stories from the original volume, as well as Dare's 1961 article Ghosts I Have Met'; the chapter Beyond the Veil' from his rare book Indian Underworld', which discusses supernatural experiences the author went through or heard of during his time in India; a rare photograph of the author; and several of his sketches. The introduction is by Reg Meuross, and the jacket illustration is taken from a painting by Dare himself. An Ash-Tree Press Limited Edition.
