This volume contains all of Robert Louis Stevenson’s supernatural short stories, showcasing both his mastery of the genre and his interest in the otherworldly and the strange ways the human brain can distort reality.
They include ‘The Body Snatchers’, the chilling tale of an avenging ghost, ‘Olalla’, one of the great horror stories in the English language and possibly one of the best werewolf stories ever written, and ‘The Waif Woman’, in which Stevenson tried to recreate the style of an Icelandic Saga and explore the destructive effects of greed.
'From my very childhood Robert Louis Stevenson was an incarnation of happiness for me.' Jorge Luis Borges
