A groundbreaking and undeservedly neglected volume, Night-Pieces contains a wide variety of weird and outré tales, ranging from stories of crime and murder to tales of ghosts, zombies, and the supernatural. This is the first unabridged reprint of Burke's collection since its original appearance and reproduces the jacket art of the first British edition.
