Description

A mariner inherits a skull that screams incessantly along with the roar of the sea; a phantom hare stalks the moors to deliver justice for a crime long dead; a man witnesses a murder in the Cornish woods, only to wonder whether it was he himself who committed the crime.

Offering a bounty of lost or forgotten strange and Gothic tales set in Cornwall, Cornish Horrors explores the rich folklore and traditions of the county in a journey through mines, local mythology, shipwrecks, seascapes, and the coming of the railway and tourism.

With tales by horror luminaries such as Bram Stoker, Poe and Mary Elizabeth Braddon, this edition also features a host of underappreciated writers such as F. Tennyson Jesse and Margery Williams – said to be a strong influence on Lovecraft’s writing.
