Set your pulses racing with Simon Marsden's eerie photographs ( IMAGE)
His haunting images of ruined houses and castles, burial mounds and gargoyles conjure up a bewitching atmosphere of the extracts from books and poems he has chosen ( THE LADY)
The internationally renownded photographer Simon Marsden has compiled this chilling collection of supernatural and fantasy literature, including the work of Bram Stoker and Edgar Allan Poe, and illustrated it with his own eerie, evocative photographs. ( FIELD)
The fascination of terror is an ancient one, as ancient as the human race, therein lies its power - stronger than our intellect, stronger even than our fears, going down to the very primitive core of our being. It was our distant ancestors, the Celts, who believed that the period between day and night, The Twilight Hour, was a dangerous time when one's earthly spirit or soul might cross over into another dimension, a supernatural world, that so fired the imaginations of this proud and mysterious race. In this book we find the creations of such poetic imaginations; stories, poems and extracts from the acknowledged literary geniuses in the genre from Europe and the USA, all of whom are of Celtic ancestry. Featuring work by Bram Stoker, Robert Louis Stevenson, Wilkie Collins, Mary Shelley, Guy de Maupassant, Charles Baudelaire, Edgar Allan Poe and many others as well as stunning new photography shot on location in England, Ireland, Scotland, France and the USA.
