    1. This is fourth book by Thomas that I‘ve read so far, and I must admit that his work is much closer to my personal tastes that is that of his significantly better known (and more prolific) brother.This collection consists, for the most part, of reprints from his debut collection “Cobwebs and Whispers”, collecting those stories that author judged worthy of wider availability as well as sharing this common historic and geographical thread.Taken together, these elegant lyrical tales paint this [...]

    2. The writing is a deft blending of Lovecraft's ineffable horror with Hawthorne's brooding study of human nature. The prose creates a deliciously dark and evocative New England ambiance, perfect reading for an icy winter's moonlit night.

    3. Anyone who enjoyed Scott Thomas's "Sea Of Ash", should find this collection of weird tales rewarding. Mr. Thomas has the capacity to create the mood and atmosphere essential to a weird tale. His characters are usually haunted souls who find themselves in seemingly mundane circumstances that turn to the bizarre and uncanny by story's end. This is a superb collection of quiet horror.My particular favorites are: The Dead Of Midwinter and A Million Dying Leaves
