STORIES OF TERROR & THE SUPERNATURAL
Jim’s beautiful wife Viola is dead, but she had hidden a terrible secret… and now the cat he had brought home for her is behaving very strangely…
Mary and Johnny were hoping for a lovely weekend in the bed-and-breakfast by the sea, but there was something not quite right about their room… definitely not right at all!
Agnes was so annoying that her sister Elsie just had to kill her. But that was not the end of it, for Agnes has returned… or has she?
Richard Davis was the story editor for the BBC’s LATE NIGHT HORROR series and the editor of the landmark THE YEAR’S BEST HORROR STORIES, as well as many other horror anthologies, including the TANDEM HORROR, SPACE, SPECTRE
and ARMADA SCI-FI series.
His short stories were widely published, but THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES is the first time his fiction has been collected in one volume.
The book also contains two rare essays by the author.
