The Judge's House

A Novella by

Malcolm Malcolmson paid his three months' rent, got a receipt, and the name of an old woman who would probably undertake to "do" for him, and came away with the keys in his pocket. He then went to the landlady of the inn, who was a cheerful and most kindly person, and asked her advice as to such stores and provisions as he would be likely to require. She threw up her hands in amazement when he told her where he was going to settle himself. "Not in the Judge's House!" she said, and grew pale as she spoke. He explained the locality of the house, saying that he did not know its name. When he had finished she answered: "Aye, sure enough -- sure enough the very place! It is the Judge's House sure enough." He asked her to tell him about the place, why so called, and what there was against it. . . . He didn't believe her, of course. Who wuld take such nonsense seriously? But soon enough, too soon, he wished he had. * This volume includes Stoker's immortal classic, "The Judge's House," and nine other rare tales from the master, including "Bridal of Dead," "The Crystal Cup," "The Dualitists," "The Fate of Fenella," "The Specter of Doom," "The Seer," "The Man from Shorrox'," "The Red Stockade," "Death in the Wings," "In the Valley of the Shadow," "The Secret of the Growing Gold," and "The Chain of Destiny."
