    More Information:

    "Supernatural tales, traditional in theme and treatment, somewhat after the manner of M. R. James. Rolt has a distinctive flair, however, for the uncanny imagery, particularly in an industrial setting; 'The Mine' and 'Hawley Bank Foundry' demonstrate this to good effect." - Robert Knowlton. "An exceptionally original collection of ghost stories ... Rolt had the special talent of combining folkloric spontaneity with artful sophistication." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 355. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 156. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-170. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1415. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992).
