First edition. "Collects sixteen stories, several of which touch on the fantastic as a thing created by the human mind, either as an act of madness, mischief or innocent faith. Has some relevance to the subject of metafiction." - Robert Eldridge. The author's stories appeared frequently in Edward J. O'Brien's annual anthology series, BEST BRITISH SHORT STORIES. His style has been traced to the influence of Conrad (and thus of Henry James) and Stephen Crane, but his subject matter is definitely British, concentrating on the lives and tragedies of rural workers, occasionally touching on the theme of madness.
