For fans of classic horror fiction, the Not at Night series of anthologies is one of the
genre's best-kept secrets. Beginning with the book from which the series took its collective
name, first published in October 1925, literary agent and author Christine Campbell
Thomson (1897-1985) edited twelve volumes which appeared from British
publisher Selwyn & Blount during the 1920s and '30s. Now here is a superb new anthology
inspired by Thomson's acclaimed series, in which some of the biggest names in contemporary
horror present their own favourite stories and novellas which, for one reason or
another, they feel have been unjustly overlooked or ignored. But be warned: these superior
terror tales—both supernatural and psychological—will leave a lasting chill down your
spine long after you have finished this book.

"The anthology gathers best or rare stories from a roll call of genre greats including Harlan Ellison, Basil Copper, Hugh B. Cave,
Dennis Etchison and Tanith Lee—a roll call of authors who have populated my own nightmares during the past forty years . . . I highly recommend it to both seasoned adventurers in the horror genre who may uncover new delights from their favourite authors to newcomers who will find examples of the very best between its pages."
