ABOUT THE BOOK

A Centenary Celebration . . .
Ronald Henry Glynn Chetwynd-Hayes was born 100 years ago. To celebrate the centenary of his birth, his long-time friend and colleague, World Fantasy Award-winning editor Stephen Jones, has compiled Gaslight, Ghosts, & Ghouls, a stunning volume of stories and non-fiction that truly does justice to the enduring legacy of R. Chetwynd-Hayes.

This massive volume contains sixteen of the author’s highly original stories of horror and humour, including a rare reprint of one of his tales featuring “the world’s only practising psychic detective” Francis St. Clare and his vivacious assistant Frederica (“Fred”) Masters, two stories that have never been reprinted since their original publication, plus a vampire novella that appears here for the very first time! There is also the longest interview with the author ever published, plus the most complete and detailed Working Bibliography of his publications yet assembled.

As R. Chetwynd-Hayes himself would have said: May you never hear invisible footsteps following you down the stairs...
