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. This third anthology inspired by
Thomson's acclaimed series once again includes many of the biggest and most respected names
in contemporary horror with some of their favourite stories, both classic and original.

"A collection that contains many readable stories."

"The volume contains a wide range of stories, many of which could not have been written at the time the original "Not At Night" series was published. Jones has done an excellent job in choosing material that keep the same kind of ambience without any hint of being old fashioned."
