Our Bookseller says:
A huge collection of weird fiction by obscure (and largely dead) authors, There Is A Graveyard That Dwells in Man is a properly creepy trip into phantasmagoric worlds of arcane decadence, unsettling design, and illusory terror. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys apocalyptic folk music, dead mystics, kissing in graveyards, or cool rocks.
The introduction by David Tibet begins with an incantation in Akkadian and was written on All Hallow’s Eve, just in case you doubted his devotion to the Graveyard that patiently waits for all of us to arrive, like “a doomed Puss-In-Boots.”
Overall, these works have obviously been selected carefully and lovingly — there’s no Lovecraft, which is great! That guy named his cat a racial slur! — which makes it a solid introduction to esoteric fiction. More practically, it also makes a great way to bully your friends into learning about eschatology! – Terry
An arcane compendium of strange fiction and hallucinatory tales, There Is a Graveyard That Dwells in Man collects chilling stories by renowned innovators of the weird and by many little-known and underrepresented or forgotten scribes of the macabre.
Selected by artist, writer, and musician David Tibet, this widely-sourced collection of supernatural rarities continues the bibliographic archaeology initiated with The Moons At Your Door (Strange Attractor Press, 2016), offering lyrical portals into worlds of strange beauty, elegant unease, and creeping decadence.
Authors include Lady Dilke, Edna Underwood, Thomas Ligotti, L. P. Hartley, R. H. Benson, Walter de la Mare, Hugh Walpole, Colette de Curzon, L. A. Lewis, Edith Wharton, and others. The volume also features translations from Coptic, folk songs, and other surprises. Comprehensive biographical and publication histories are provided by noted scholar of bibliographic arcana Mark Valentine.
There Is a Graveyard That Dwells in Man offers an unnerving, serpentine tributary to the canon of supernatural literature.
