A hardback copy, published without a dust jacket. Unread. It has been carefully stored for some considerable time and whilst there is no obvious damage to the book cover it is showing some signs of shelf-wear. When held to the light, there are numerous feint scratches on the boards. Internally, there is a hint of age tanning at the top edge of the pages.
This story was originally published in 1901.
SYNOPSIS: “Of course I ought to have expected that, only I didn’t. It came to me as an absolute, for a moment an overwhelming shock. It seemed as though it wasn’t a face, as though it must needs be a mask, a horror, a deformity that would be disavowed and explained. There was no nose and the thing had thin bulging eyes at the sides – in the silhouette I had supposed they were ears. There were no ears… I have tried to draw one of those heads but I cannot. There was a mouth, downwardly curved, like a human mouth in a face that stares ferociously…
There the thing was…looking at us!”
