From the British Library's Tales of the Weird series.


A figure emerges from a painting to pursue a bitter vengeance; a faithful butler continues to serve his master despite being shot dead days ago; the last words of a dying man haunt the airwaves, only to return via telegram to reveal his murderer.


From the vaults of the British Library comes a new anthology celebrating the best works of forgotten, never since republished, supernatural fiction from the early 20th century. Waiting within are malevolent spirits eager to possess the living and mysterious spectral guardians – a diverse host of phantoms exhumed from the rare pages of literary magazines and newspaper serials to thrill once more.
