STRANGE TALES OLD AND NEW

edited, with an Introduction,
by Jack Adrian

Published 28 November 1997 in an edition of 500 copies
This third volume in the Ash-Tree Press series collecting all of A.M. Burrages known supernatural fiction contains twenty-eight stories. Fourteen of the stories comprise Burrages rare second collection, Someone in the Room, published under the pseudonym Ex-Private-X in 1931. Five stories are the sole original tales from the almost equally elusive Between the Minute and the Hour (1967); of the rest, seven are now collected in book form for the first time. The volume ends with two fascinating articles: one semi-autobiographical, on real-life ghosts; the second (previously uncollected) detailing Burrages ghost story preferences.
