About The Book

Mr Abney was found in his chair, his head thrown back... In hisleft side was a terrible lacerated wound, exposing the heart. Therewas no blood on his hands, and a long knife that lay on the tablewas perfectly clean.

M. R. James is one of the greatest writers of supernatural stories fromthe last century. He has left an enduring legacy, and remains popularnot only among generations of readers but also among later writers-from H. P. Lovecraft and John Bellairs to Stephen King and PaulTheroux.

In this selection you will encounter the critic Mr Dunning who, afterhaving rejected a paper on 'The Truth of Alchemy', finds himself beingfollowed by an indescribable horror night and day. Mr Garrett, alibrarian, is called upon to retrieve a Talmudic text. But, in performingthis simple task, he is drawn into the matter of a mysteriously codedwill and a murderous uncle. Ann Clark, jilted and murdered by GeorgeMartin, comes back from the beyond to send her lover to the gallows.And, after a scholar of pagan rites is found with his chest ripped open,his young cousin understands why the man took him in as an orphan.Understated, placid surfaces which conceal the stuff of nightmares,the stories in The Creature on the Moonlit Road are some of the best inthe genre. Gripping, and full of the most unexpected surprises, thisvolume is guaranteed to thrill.
