Marjorie Bowen is remembered primarily as a distinguished historical novelist (pseudonym of Gabrielle Margaret Vere Campbell - 1886-1952), but her vast literary legacy additionally embraces several supremely accomplished tales of terror. Miss Bowen's ruthlessly honest portrayal of human nature and masterful knowledge of period settings combine with her keen sensitivity for the macabre in a group of eerie tales that often scale the heights of starkly spectral fear. Prefaced with an introduction by the author, the stories include: "The Hidden Ape, " "Kecksies, " "Raw Material, " "The Avenging of Ann Leete, " "The Crown Derby Plate, " "The Sign-Painter and the Crystal Fishes, " "Scoured Silk, " "The Breakdown, " "One Remained Behind, " "The House by the Poppy Field, " "Florence Flannery, " and "Half Past Two."… (més)

Hit-and-miss collection of horror and dark fantasy. I read the entire book in just a few sittings, which might not be the best approach to Bowen's work since many of the stories failed to leave any impression whatsoever, but Kecksies is worth picking up for two tales that qualify as minor masterpieces: "The House by the Poppy Field" and "The Sign Painter and the Crystal Fishes". (The former is an understated but thoroughly disquieting ghost story in the English pastoral tradition; the latter is virtually impossible to pigeonhole, written in a kaleidoscopically surreal style unique--as far as I know--to this author, and could well find its way into your nightmares.) Rarely anthologized with her better-known contemporaries, Marjorie Bowen is right at home on the Arkham House imprint. ( )
