Long out of print, this new edition retains Lord David Cecils Foreword to the original volume but now includes a Preface specially written by the authors son, Giles Woodforde, and an Afterword by Richard Dalby - making it the definitive edition of this oft-admired collection of strange tales for the connoisseur.“We soon discovered that Dr Woodforde had a natural flair for storytelling, especially weird and mysterious ones involving the supernatural, subtly different to the typical ghost story. So frightening were some of these stories that they found us burrowing even deeper into our beds. Before we left the school we implored him to write down the tales.
