Featuring contributions from Shirley Jackson, Roald Dahl, Angela Carter and Franz Kafka, the new addition to the British Library's 'Tales of the Weird' series is a little... hard to stomach.
Open this creepy larder to find uncanny and macabre tales of cannibalism, werewolves, vampires and even a mushroom devil. Sixteen classic tales, two poems (including Christina Rossetti's Goblin Market) and an essay make up the sinister menu, and each entry has been selected and introduced by editor Zara-Louise Stubbs. It's a heady concoction that may leave the reader feeling a little... queasy.
The addition of illustrations taken from the books of Isabella Mary Beeton is a nice touch.
