Summary

Including masterpieces such as Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" and Agatha Christie's "The Lamp," this eerie anthology of fifteen stories is not for the faint of heart.

Author Biography

Aidan Chambers worked for some years as a teacher before he and his wife, Nancy, founded the Thimble Press and published Signal, and a critical journal devoted to children's literature. In 1982 Nancy and Aidan won the Eleanor Farjeon Award, and Aidan's most recent title, Postcard From No Man's Land (Bodley Head), won the Carnegie Medal in 2000.
