A rare and highly regarded collection of the ghostly and strange The author of this collection of tales of the supernatural, Lady Bessie Kyffin-Taylor, undertook few forays into the realms of the fiction of the ghostly and other worldly and the result is this book of seven short stories, From out of the Silence. Originally published in an undated edition, but believed to have been released around 1920, the collection appeared just two years before the author's death. Kyffin-Taylor's style is judged by some to be reminiscent of the acclaimed writer of supernatural tales E. F. Benson, and must therefore be of interest to any aficionado of the genre, because the comparison elevates the quality of these tales into heady company. That said, one might mourn the fact that Kyffin-Taylor's output was so small. So concise a volume, published so long ago and with such an uncertain history must be a rare find indeed on the antiquarian market, and so the Leonaur editors are doubly pleased to make it more widely available by including it in the Leonaur Collected Supernatural and Weird Fiction series. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
