Read full description of the books The Lonely Devil: Tales of the Supernatural:“In humans there is an almost maddening desire to know and to understand; it is this same desire that has given rise to some of the greatest scientific discoveries of our age. But what of those instances in which we are faced with an event or a phenomenon wholly passing our powers of comprehension?”
“I saw in the moonlight some pathetic creature rise up from the sea and clamber over the edge. Then, with grotesque movements, half-walking and half-crawling, it approached the lonely blackhouse. As I watched in horror, I could not but be thankful that it was too dark for me to see any more than the silhouette of the thing. It was the form of a man; that much I could see, yet I knew instinctively as I looked upon that figure that it was not living, and I was at once filled with a dread so profound that my very heart seemed to stand still.”
The Lonely Devil is a collection of short stories exploring the grotesque, the tragic and the unexplained. From Scotland during the Middle Ages to New York during the Great Depression, these fifteen stories tell of madness, loss, unquiet souls and benevolent spirits.
