Edited and with an introduction by Dave Brzeski.
Cover artwork by Edward Miller.
ISBN 978-0-9572962-5-1.

For the first time, all of Elizabeth Walter's 31 short stories collected in one volume. Supernatural, eerie and uncanny tales from her collections Snowfall & Other Chilling Events (1965), The Sin Eater & Other Scientific Impossibilities (1967), Davy Jones's Tale & Other Supernatural Stories (1971), Come And Get Me & Other Uncanny Invitations (1973) and Dead Woman & Other Haunting Experiences (1975).

Elizabeth Walter was a novelist, short story writer, translator and for thirty years from 1961 editor of the Collins Crime Club imprint, the highly regarded subscriber club. She was a very private person, but in his informative introduction, the book's editor, Dave Brzeski, has researched snippets of bibliographic information from her days with William Collins. In addition he discusses her writing and reviews the adaptations of her stories on television.

Positively brilliant. They should rank as classics among occult stories. The character building and atmosphere are superb. Dennis Wheatley on ‘The Sin Eater’
