Summary

Alfred McLelland Burrage was born in 1889. His father and uncle were both writers, primarily of boy’s fiction, and by age sixteen, A. M. Burrage had joined them and quickly became a master of the market, publishing his stories regularly across a number of publications. By the start of the Great War, Burrage was well established. In 1916 he was conscripted to fight on the Western Front, his experiences becoming the classic book War is War by Ex-Private X. For the remainder of his life, Burrage was rarely printed in book form but continued to write and be published on a prodigious scale in magazines and newspapers. His supernatural stories are, by common consent, some of the best ever written. Succinct, yet full of character, each reveals a twist and a flavor that is unsettling … sometimes menacing … always disturbing.Included stories:Warning WhispersThe WaxworkThe Recurring TragedyThe SweeperThe Acquittal
