A couple of tiny nicks to head and tail of spine of dustwrapper and bottom edge of rear panel of dustwrapper. No tears. A hint of very light unobtrusive fading to the red colour on the spine of the dustwrapper. Edges of rear panel of dustwrapper very slightly rubbed and marked (being a white background). Front panel of dustwrapper bright. ***192 pages. 204 x 136 mm. ***Seven supernatural short stories: Dead Woman; The Hollies and the Ivy; A Monstrous Tale; The Little House; Dual Control; Telling the Bees; Christmas Night. ***'Elizabeth Walter has added one more book to her successful series of supernatural stories. Once again, the background to events that are unbelievable is presented in such matter-of-fact detail and built up by such small, skilful touches that when the impossible happens and normality slides into nightmare, the reader may be filled with unease or terror, but never with disbelief. ***As usual, the settings are varied: not only Elizabeth Walter's own Welsh Border, but pollution-ridden Lake Constance or the claustrophobic interior of a car. Common to all of them is her interest in legend and folklore, in what she calls 'the world next door'. Yet those as skeptical as she admits to being will often find that horror has natural explanation, that the reader can choose the interpretation he prefers. ether way, her stories are equally compelling, as natural and supernatural meet.' (Quote from inside front of dustwrapper blurb). ***' "In Come and Get Me and other Uncanny Invitations" Elizabeth Walker goes in for old-fashioned haunting and she writes like an M. R. James-style believer. Her situations are at least as positive as real life, her ghosts rather more substantial that real people.' Norman Shrapnell, Guardian. (Review quote about "Come and Get Me and other Uncanny Invitations" from rear panel of dustwrapper blurb). ***First impression of the true first edition of 'Dead Woman and Other Haunting Experiences' in its original dustwrapper, very hard to find in such nice bright, collectable condition. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Bookseller Inventory # 3115
