Description

C. F. Keary's collection of stories and sketches, 'Twixt Dog and Wolf (1901), is one of the rarest and most sought-after volumes in the annals of weird fiction. Collected here are 'The Message from the God', a decadent paean to the Great God Pan; 'Elizabeth', a tale of witchcraft in medieval Germany that John Buchan called 'one of the finest witch tales I know'; 'The Four Students', a story of black magic and alchemy in the bloody days of the French Reign of Terror; and a series of ten 'Phantasies', bizarre and hallucinatory nightmares in prose.

This first-ever reissue includes the unabridged text of the original edition, plus a new introduction and notes by James Machin.

'A collection of stories ... each with an element of the weird, the uncanny, the mystical. Such an element ... will always attract readers, and Mr. Keary's management of it is one of the best I have ever seen.' - Richard Le Gallienne

'He writes carefully and exquisitely ... in every way admirable.' - John Buchan

'A series of short sketches in the weird and macabre . . . excellently done.' - The Times
