Read full description of the books:
these are charming and eloquently written but never emotionally involving. also, not sure why this is being marketed as horror as the majority of these are realistic, conversational tales about historical figures (da vinci, shakespeare, jesus, ambrose bierce) and none of the stories aim to be scary, except maybe for the title story (debatable). anyway, apparently kersh is/was harlan ellison's favorite writer, which is just sort of bizarre, based on this book. i'd expect something dazzlingly out there and in-your-face; these are like, basically, clever and polite notions. maybe his other stuff is different.

Read information about the authorGerald Kersh was born in Teddington-on-Thames, near London, and, like so many writers, quit school to take on a series of jobs -- salesman, baker, fish-and-chips cook, nightclub bouncer, freelance newspaper reporter and at the same time was writing his first two novels.
In 1937, his third published novel, Night and the City, hurled him into the front ranks of young British writers. Twenty novels later Kersh created his personal masterpiece, Fowler's End, regarded by many as one of the outstanding novels of the century. He also, throughout his long career, wrote more than 400 short stories and over 1,000 articles.
Once a professional wrestler, Kersh also fought with the Coldstream Guards in World War II. His account of infantry training They Die With Their Boots Clean (1941), became an instant best-seller during that war.
After traveling over much of the world, he became an American citizen, living quietly in Cragsmoor, in a remote section of the Shawangunk Mountains in New York State. He died in Kingston, NY, in 1968.
(Biography compiled from "Nightmares & Damnations" and Fantastic Fiction.)
