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.
