ABOUT THE BOOK
Collected together for the first time in three paperback volumes from PS Publishing are all the supernatural and macabre short stories and novellas of legendary British writer Basil Copper. Drawn from numerous collections, anthologies and magazines as varied as the legendary Pan Book of Horror Stories series, rare and collectible compilations edited by Peter Haining and August Derleth, and the author’s own highly-prized books from Arkham House, these three extensive volumes contain more than four decades’ worth of weird fiction from one of the genre’s most renowned practitioners.
In this initial volume you will find such classics of the macabre as the author’s first professionally published short story, ‘The Spider’, along with memorable tales like “Camera Obscura’ (adapted by Rod Serling for the TV series Night Gallery), ‘The Janissaries of Emillion’, ‘The Academy of Pain’, ‘Amber Print’ and ‘The Recompensing of Albano Pizar’, which was dramatised by BBC Radio 4.
