"Even if Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had not created Sherlock Holmes he would have become famous as a writer of macabre and weird stories.
Conan Doyle himself was interested in spiritualism and the occult and professed to "have a hunger after all which is bizarre and fantastic".
Peter Haining has collected together - for the first time in one volume - all those masterly and eerie tales which show the author's vaunting imagination at its very best.
Here are stories of ghosts and demons, vampires, werewolves and ghouls - and even reanimated mummies! Spine-chilling tales of the supernatural to make your scalp tingle and your pulse race.
Each tale is introduced with an intriguing account of its origin, and sometimes the unbelievably strange but true facts upon which it is based."
