From misty moors, crags and clifftops comes a hoard of strange tales gathered by Johnny Mains, award-winning anthologist and editor of other British Library anthologies. The writer and editor relates how he sourced these from Scotland’s literary heritage. Bustling with witches, ghosts, devils and merfolk, this selection celebrates the works of treasured Scottish writers such as John Buchan, Robert Louis Stevenson, Dorothy K. Haynes and Neil M. Gunn alongside rare pieces by lesser-known authors – including two tales translated from Scots Gaelic.

Brooding in the borderlands where strange folklore, bizarre mythology and twentieth-century hauntings meet, this volume promises chills and shivers as keen and fresh as the wind-whipped wilds of Scotland.
