'Australia has a long tradition of horror writing, stretching back to colonial times. The stories in this anthology are intended to showcase the richness and variety of Australian weird tales in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, from a variety of authors, including Mary Fortune
, Lionel Sparrow
and Marcus Clarke
, to name a few. James Doig has unearthed a rare and compelling collection of Australian horror classics that have remained largely undisturbed in the pages of old books and periodicals' (www.equilibriumbooks.com
