¶ The author's first collection of supernatural stories, 'an excellent collection of original and varied ghostly tales' - Wilson, SHADOWS IN THE ATTIC (2000). Included is the celebrated tale of black magic 'He Cometh and He Passeth By', the main character of which - Oscar Clinton - is a thinly veiled fictional version of Aleister Crowley.
