Thirteen Stories of “guests” who did not wait for an invitation make up this anthology compiled and edited by Peter C. Smith.

Nesbit, while the editors eerie tale, The Strikers adds an extra dimension.

The Eastern Daily Press said that: “…the stories and good and ghastly. There are eight old favourites and five brand new ones, like the editor’s own ‘The Strikers’ about a huge, sinister, grandfather clock, which terrified me rigid.”
