Behind the superficial holiday veneer of Cornwall, with its sandy beaches and rocky coves, lies the real land of enchantment. It is a county of moors and mists, of ancient stone monuments, derelict mines, crumbling mansions and dangerous mires. This setting, coupled with the ferocity of the storms, the lonely stretches of heather and spun by the Celtic nature of the Cornish folk, is perfect for an excursion into the world beyond the grave. The stories included here are not simply mystery tales set in Cornwall, but are an attempt to cross the natural frontiers of life and death, and to probe beyond into the forbidden half of the universe.

Thanks to Steve of Vault for the cover scan, blurb and contents
