The Dead of Night - Oliver Onions

I got this latest collection of ghost stories from Wordsworth Books yesterday - and what an amazing bargain it is. Just over 600 pages of stories by one of the greatest ghost-story writers ever for less than £3! (£2.99)

I really can't believe how Wordsworth can manage to produce books of this quality at such incredibly low prices.

I am really looking forward to delving into this book. The first story is the famous Beckoning Fair One.


  1. Oliver Onions is the business!

  2. even i bought the same book n am looking forward to reading "the beckoning fair one" and "Io" as well!

  3. A great writer who has been overlooked for far too long.

    I read "The Beckoning Fair One" many years ago, and very impressed so I was very pleased to see this collection of his short stories at such a low price.
    Maybe Wordsworth Publishers could issue the works of Robert Aickman, another sublime writer of strange tales at an equally humane price ?
