"Keith Roberts has long been one of my favorite SF writers, but I hadn't realized how much really top notch supernatural fiction he'd written as well. This reprint of the 1989 British collection includes one of my favorites of his, "The Scarlet Lady," a demon car story that rivals Stephen King's Christine for its pure nastiness. The title story is almost as good, chronicling the strange goings on in an old mansion, as is "Everything in the Garden," in which a woman is tormented by what appears to be a demonic tree. The other stories include a variety of untraditional ghost stories, but there's nary a bad one in the bunch. There's never been a US edition of this before that I know of, so most of these stories should be brand new to most readers. One of the best titles Wildside has brought back into print." -- Don D'Ammassa, Science Fiction Chronicle
