The Folio Society to Release an Original Collection of ‘Weird Tales’

The Folio Society will release a unique and chilling anthology of Weird Tales this March curated by Pulitzer Prize-winner and aficionado of weird fiction, Michael Dirda. Masterfully illustrated by artist Harry Campbell, Didra curates twelve mind-shattering tales of the strange and uncanny, with M. R. James, Shirley Jackson, Robert Aickman, Algernon Blackwood, and Mark Samuels all contributing to a tapestry of creeping horror.

Introduced by Dirda himself, readers are promised encounters with revenants, demons, monsters, and otherworldly entities, full of tales of the inexplicable that open onto other dimensions. The unique collection includes creepy tales from The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft to The Little Room by Madeline Yale Wynne and will delight any reader curious about the peculiar.

Three-quarter bound in blocked cloth, Harry Campbell’s stark and stylized illustrations in black, green, and white skilfully celebrate shadows, architecture, and creepy iconography. Haunting each of the seven unsettling illustrations and binding design, Campbell’s precise linework, that nods to traditional woodcut, and love of the genre marry perfectly to each sinister story.
