Publisher's Synopsis

A compilation of uncommon supernatural tales and bibliographic oddities edited by musician David Tibet.

A third volume of supernatural tales and obscure texts that continues the series of chilling compilations edited by artist, writer, and musician David Tibet that began with The Moons At Your Door and There Is a Graveyard that Dwells In Man

Dark Indeed, Sorrel includes the first new story, and a selection of new poems, written by June-Alison Gibbons, author of The Pepsi Cola Addict, since the 1990s, and unpublished poems by her twin sister Jennifer. 

Longer texts include the anonymously-authored "The Autobiography Of A Schizophrenic" (1951), Theodore Frederick Poulson's bizarre and hallucinatory ghost-story "The Flying Wig" (1948), the apocalyptic, visionary "A Description Of A Remarkable Vision, Seen By Thomas Webster, While Speaking Over A Corpse At The Grave's Side" (1798) text-accompanied by hand-coloured illustrations-and the early witchcraft / poltergeist account "Witchcraft At The Lamb Inn Bristol" (1800).

Also included are stories by Miriam Bloch, Conall Cearnach, Arthur L Salmon, Rosaline Norton, Edgar Magnus Birnstingl, HW Bousfield and Wirt Gerrare, a previously unpublished play-fragment by Count Stenbock, and Coptic, Ugaritic, and Biblical Hebrew texts translated by David Tibet.
