Book: Amyas Northcote «In Ghostly Company»
Серия: "Tales Of Mystery&The Supernatural"
This title features Introduction by David Stuart Davies.`A grey cloud formed on the summit of the altar, diminishing, thickening and turning into a Shape, a shape of evil and fear. The silent group by the fire once more broke forth into wild gesticulations and cries, Stella prostrated herself, the Form on the altar grew clearer and with a cry of horror Mr Fowke turned away and rushed madly across the moor`. Amyas Northcote`s In Ghostly Company is a rare and splendid collection of strange and disturbing tales from the golden age of ghost stories. His style is akin to that of the master of the genre M. R. James: it is measured and insidiously suggestive, producing unnerving chills rather than shocks and gasps. Northcote`s tales make the reader unsettled and uneasy. This is partly due to the fact that the hauntings or strange occurrences take place in natural or mundane surroundings - surroundings familiar to the reader but never before thought of as unusual or threatening. Long out of print, this book remains an enthralling and chilling read.
