The supernatural tales of A M Burrage were recognised by contemporaries such as M R James and the critic E F Bleiler as some of the most imaginative and cleverly told ghost stories in the English language, and yet today his name haunts the fringes of the genre. Burrage was unafraid to position his ghosts among the trappings of modernity, and his experiments with the genre set him apart from the antiquarian ' Jamesian' tradition. Presenting 13 of the author' s best tales from the 1920s and 30s - including accounts of uncanny living wax figures, unsettling timeslips into troubled pasts and Burrage' s horror masterpiece ' One Who Saw' - this collection is another step towards restoring A M Burrage' s name to the heights of the best writers of supernatural fiction.
Alfred McLelland Burrage (1889-1956) was an English author who wrote a huge number of stories for the pulp magazines of the early twentieth century, including ghost and horror fiction, historical romance and adventure tales for younger readers. He also wrote a handful of novels, including a visceral first-hand account of his experience on the battlefields of France, War is War, under the pseudonym ' Ex-Private X' .
