R. Chetwynd-Hayes (ed.) – Gaslight Tales Of Terror (Fontana, 1976)

Justin Todd

By the eerie flickering of the gas-lamps, in the dim shadows cast by guttering candles, dark creatures lurk in the menacing gloom … and wait to pounce …

The sculptor who sold his soul to the Devil. The wax-work murderess who came to life. Grim death in a Victorian orphanage. Maggoty corpses fresh from the grave. The ghost with the gaping wound.
