Not To Be Taken At Night

Posted by demonik on June 9, 2008

John Robert Columbo & Michael Richardson (eds.) – Not To Be Taken At Night: 13 Classic Tales Of Mystery And The Supernatural (Ravette, 1988)

H. R. Percy – The Timeless Island
Hugh Garner – The Premeditated Death Of Samuel Glover
Yves Theriault – The Barren Field
Graham Petrie – Village Theatre
Al Purdy – The Undertaker
Brian Moore – The Sight

Ethel Wilson – Mrs Sleepwalker


“The oldest acid strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. “ – H. P. Lovecraft


NOT TO BE TAKEN AT NIGHT is a collection of thirteen eerie tales of the unknown — from the subtly bizarre to the frankly blood-curdling — by thirteen top writers. Some of these authors write of the supernatural; some delve into the darker side of our own psychology; some explore those strange boundaries of normal and paranormal, real and surreal. But all succeed in cutting out from under our feet the terra firma of “what is”, leaving us suspended in the frightful void of “what ought not to be”.
