They Return at Evening

H. R. Wakefield

2005 Ash-Tree Press trade hardcover format, reprinted from the 1995 edition with Preface to the new edition & Introduction by Barbara Roden. Not remainder marked, dj is not clipped. Dj has 3 small smudge marks, no rips, no discoleration & looks very good in Brodart protective sleeve. Pages clean, unmarked & bright. Red cloth boards bright, clean & square. Binding tight & straight as unread, gold lettering on spine is fine. Wakefield's ghost stories have been compared to those of M. R. James, but this is an over-simplification: Wakefield's particular brand of terror is unique. But Wakefield did agree with James as to the need for malevolence, as is shown by this wording from the dust wrapper of the book's first edition: 'The Author of "The Ghost Stories of an Antiquary" in the preface to one of his books expressed his lively distaste for benevolent ghosts, and ghosts with nice minds. The author profoundly agrees with this sentiment of the master, and, furthermore, he abominates the "natural" explanation, a poisonous anti-climax. So this much can be said for his tales, that those Who Return therein are animated by undiluted malevolence, and no iconoclastic materialist has been allowed to cast a doubt on their credentials as genuine apparitions.'
