A freshly turned grave with one mourner filled with hate; a telephone kiosk at night with something outside trying to get in; a ghoul playing knucklebones on a tombstone, a bodiless evening dress suit dancing in a moonlight glade; an iron shark tooth; a witch and a were-leopard ….
These are but a few of the ingredients of this nightmarish collection of weird stories.
