This is another brilliantly original work by R. Chetwynd-Hayes: a collection of stories, each one connected to the other by a common theme or character.
Three old men are seated on an old bench under a much older oak tree. Soon children come out of the house and ghost men consider going in. Draw warmth and life force from the long cold attic. They become The Intruders. There is a wedding which goes very nicely until the Man in Black arrives. He takes the bride away and she is never seen again - or is she?
The beautiful young man who puts on an ugly mask and finds he cannot take it off.
The man who murders his wife only to find that she has murdered him.
A Cumberloo, another monster to add to the R. Chetwynd-Hayes list. It looks like a hideous spider monkey, but was somebody's landlady. Well, these things will happen. Sit under the old oak tree and listen to a bird sing the Twilight Song, before spending a Night on the Road where you will meet the girl who could perform miracles.
And what about the man who hated women?
Why not find out if you can shudder and shiver both at the same time? But in the name of sanity, do not bump into the Shiver Maker.
Altogether an unusual and entertaining book. Don't put it down until you have read it from cover to cover. You'll find it worthwhile.
