More About This Title Close to the Edge


A precipice haunted by a figure without a shadow; a young man’s obsession with a beautiful girl; an extraordinary tropical plant which turns out to need rather more than water and sunshine for nourishment; a dolls’ house whose occupants appear to be re-enacting the terrible events of the past. All these twenty tales of the extraordinary, never before published, contain subtle twists in the tail which will have readers on the edge of their chairs. Close to the Edge is a collection of finely-crafted tales in the tradition of Roald Dahl, Edgar Allan Poe, H G Wells and M R James. If you like short stories, read on.
