Summary
"A series of vaguely connected short stories having as a background a monstrous and suppressed book whose perusal brings fright, madness, and a spectral tragedy, [yet] achieves notable heights of cosmic fear in spite of uneven interest and a somewhat trivial and affected cultivation of the Gallic studio atmosphere made popular by Du Maurier's 'Trilby.'"--Introduction
Summary
A collection of strange, macabre short stories, originally published in 1895, are linked together by mention of a fictional, forbidden play which reveals truths so terrible it makes all those who read it go mad
