Collection of fourteen supernatural stories: the author's first book. Limited to 300 hardcover copies. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

''this first collection of stories by William Charlton shows just how wide a range of material can be used to create a genuine, contemporary tale of unease. From the more traditional horror of ‘Undesirable Guests’, with its dubious visitors left in charge of children in an isolated north-country house, to the surreal, bureaucratic complexities of ‘The Area’, Charlton engineers the everyday into something far more warped and off-beam. ‘Travelling By Air’ has the quality of an unshakeable nightmare, while in ‘Hakanono’, European certainties are fatally undermined in a South Seas setting. ‘Norton Camp’ is a time-travelling ghost story with a military theme, and in ‘The Conference Centre,’ nothing can be taken for granted, not even the walls of the building itself''.
