Description
Welcome to a haunted world; the world of Keith Roberts' powerful and unique imagination. These stories show Roberts' fascination for the curious and unclassifiable; and as ever, his mastery of character and detail. 'Susan' introduces the reader to a schoolgirl with awesome psychic powers; but the sensitive treatment turns a shock situation into a brilliant fable, while 'The Scarlet Lady', predating Stephen King's Christine, has the genuine stench of petrol, oil and demons. 'The Eastern Windows' chillingly continues the theme; by contrast, 'Winderwood' introduces us to a fearsome locale that Roberts insists is real. 'Mrs. Cibber' transports the reader, with complete conviction, to the smog-ridden London of the fifties and unfolds the strange tale of a young graphic designer haunted by a woman from the eighteenth century. 'The Snake Princess', equally atmospheric, tells the story of a boy's doomed, bizarre love, while 'Everything in the Garden' presents the tour de force of a haunting within a haunting.
