First published in the early 1900s, they have never been out of print, and are recognised as classics of the genre. This collection contains some of his most chilling tales, where the ordinary becomes menacing, curiosity leads to the uncovering of something dreadful, and scepticism can be fatal."A View from a Hill" sees Fanshawe embroiled in a malevolent man's dark scheme when he borrows an unusual pair of field-glasses. In "Rats", Mr Thompson comes to regret the desire to investigate a locked room in the country inn where he is staying, while "A School Story" features an unnamed narrator telling a mysterious tale of his schooldays thirty years before.
