Mark Samuels is one of the few modern masters of the weird tale. He has enjoyed effusive praise from the likes of Thomas Ligotti, Ramsey Campbell and T.E.D. Klein. In his latest collection of tales he demonstrates the sense of mystical awe and horror coupled with an elegant prose style that has made his name a byword for fantastic fiction of the highest quality. Where nightmares become reality, where shadows are bright, where the future is already decayed and dying, here, within the pages of this volume, you will find a consummation devoutly to be wished.
