Summary (From the publisher):

These eight stories draw the reader irresistibly into eight strange worlds—uncanny, enigmatic, unearthly. In each there is something chillingly wrong—a hint of diabolism or vampirism, of reincarnation or the living dead—all which could be explained away as hallucination or hysteria. Or could it?

The stories cover a wide variety of settings and situations. A young English girl falls into a peaceful but oddly enervating love in a palazzo in Ravenna, a man traveling on business finds himself as night falls in an isolated, unnervingly Kafka-esque hotel, Prince Albrecht von Allendorf meets his mysterious end in a mountain lake in Bavaria.
