FITZ-JAMES O BRIEN
WHAT WAS IT? AND OTHER HORRORS
$20.95 ... PAPERBACK

This unique and unrivalled edition of O’Brien’s best weird tales, fantasies, and mysteries includes critical introductions to each story, contextual information, and chilling illustrations that breathe life into O’Brien’s Gothic visions and bizarre fantasias.
Building on the weird tales of Hoffmann and Poe, Fitz-James O’Brien is one of horror and fantasy literature’s best hidden secrets. His astonishingly original forays into speculative fiction include an army of possessed Christmas dolls, the sudden and short-lived manifestation of an invisible monster, a disappearing room possessed by cannibal spirits, a murderous scientist’s discovery of a microscopic woman in a drop of water, a child’s symbiotic relationship to a grave, and a haunted gallows-tree.
