A volume of original essays on horror and fantasy writing as a genre and one of the few critical guides to the subject. "Creepers" concentrates on the rich and neglected vein of British 20th century horror and fantasy, tracing its influences from 19th century vampire-gothic to Christmas ghost tale and exploring the historical, formal and aesthetic concerns of this diverse group of writers.
