BORN OF NIGHTMARES...

Presented within are nine examples of the finest horror and supernatural literature ever written. Inspired by a series of dreams and nightmares, Helen Leys, writing under the pseudonym Eleanor Scott, crafted these stories of suspense and terror, atmosphere and dread, in 1929 - and never again wrote in this genre; Randalls Round has not been available in the UK since that year.

Chilling tales of suspense, antiquity and sacrifice; spine-tingling stories of possession, ancestry, and evil. This collection of deliciously crafted, ghoulish tales are some of the most sought-after by aficionados of the genre and include the superlative 'Celui-la', 'At Simmel Acres Farm' and 'The Twelve Apostles'. Over 80 years have passed since their original publication and the passage of time has left their thrall undiminished; these historic, macabre tales unsettle the modern reader just as effectively as their predecessors.
