Two collections of weird tales pulled from The Novel Magazine were published in 1916 and 1918. This volume brings together all sixteen stories, which include traditional hauntings, vengeful spirits, cursed objects, and aid from the afterlife. Settings vary-a chess game has deadly consequences, unearthly bagpipes predict death for a clan member, a WW1 submarine has a ghostly occupant, and a bestial transformation marks a killer. They are perfect for evening reading when shadows grow dense and nocturnal sounds resonate through the dusky stillness. The stories included are The Unknown Quantity, The Armless Man, The Tomtom Clue, The Case of Sir Alister Moeran, The Kiss, The Goth, The Last Ascent, The Terror by Night, The Tragedy at the Loup Noir, The Mailed Foot, The Pipers of Mallory, Visiting Rounds, The Jungle, The Haunted Chessmen, The Eighth Lamp, and Bill Dixon Stands By.
