David G. Rowlands had been writing ghost stories for the British small press for many years, and his supernatural fiction has won him a large following. Several of his tales have been published in anthologies of supernatural stories, including the Year’s Best Horror series edited by the late Karl Edward Wagner. David has written several ghost stories continuing the  adventures of E.G. Swain’s Mr Batchel, Vicar of Stoneground, the most haunted parish in England. These are included in this collection, which reprints more than thirty of David’s tales, and contains several new stories written for this edition. The cover illustration is by Douglas Walters.
