In the safe sheltered comfort of a winter's fire, as the title suggests, these stories of horror will rouse trmbling and shudders. They are worse than ghost stories, for they haunt the mind even more than they work on the nerves. Even the cheerful nightmares among them, like "Dinah's Mammoth," and such flippant ones as "William Tyrwhitt's 'Copy, '" have this effect. Science has inspired a few; not one has been suggested by a commonplace circumstance. They can be difficult reading which is some defense against their powers of haunting, the produce of a restlessly inventive brain. The tales are chilling, clever and original.
