Comments & Further Information

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!”
