Summary

This is the very first collection of short stories written by author David Niall Wilson. It was originally published as a signed, limited edition trade paperback in 1995. This book includes many early stories that have never been reprinted, and two - notably "On the Third Day," and "A Candle Lit in Sunlight" that were later expanded to full-length novels. The cover is by the late and sorely missed Augie Wiedeman and the interior illustrations are by Michael Grilla.

This collection includes vampires, magic, Lovecraftian horror, and religious fable. The introduction is by the late grandmaster of horror and fantasy, Hugh B. Cave.

This will be a Crossroad Press production.

The Fall of the House of Escher & Other Illusions

I did not particularly enjoy most of these tales. Don't get me wrong, they were very well written. The subject matter was not particularly in my wheelhouse, though, with the exceptions being the title story and Yours, the Vengence.
