Book Description:
This is a collection of short stories by Barry Pain, first published in 1914. While generally best-known for his horror and supernatural fiction, Barry Pain turns to general fiction, mystery, and humour in this volume. Sorely needed in 1914, one might say, and perhaps also sorely needed today. - Summary by Carolin
