A collection of supernatural horror stories by a multiple award-winning master of the fantastic. From the author of Swords and Deviltry and many other classic vels, a recipient of both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, this is a treasure trove of horrific tales, many of which remained out of print for decades after appearing in such magazines as Unkwn, Thrilling Mystery, Startling Stories, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, and the acclaimed horror specialty magazine Whispers 13-14. In addition to the title story, this collection also includes: -Cry Witch!- (1951), -I'm Looking for Jeff- (1952), -Ms. Found in a Maelstrom- (1959), -The Button Molder- (1979), -Dark Wings- (1976), and -The Ermous Bedroom- (2001), which is original to this volume.
