No. 19

(The Garden at Number 19)
A novel by

John Plowden is a young solicitor with a modest dream - a house of his own in quiet suburbia, where he can engage in undisturbed study of his beloved Classics. A gamble on the stock market enables him to purchase No. 20 Walden Road. But all is not well and soon, Plowden becomes convinced that his neighbour Mr. Woodfell has succeeded in calling up creatures from the abyss in the back garden of No. 19. But just what is the ultimate end of Woodfell's forbidden rites? And will Plowden succeed in protecting Woodfell's niece from the diabolical forces gathering next door?

Originally published in 1910, this novel of the occult betrays the influence of Arthur Machen (who appears in the story as 'Ambrose Marks'), whilst lacing its creepy and disturbing episodes with sardonic humour. It is a novel no fan of classic horror fiction will want to miss!
