Much has been made about the misogyny of the author and apparent in his books but I found it to be no worse than much more modern works. So, unless you're EXTREMELY thin-skinned about remarks like that I find no reason to not enjoy them whole-heartedly. And if you are, well, I guess you'll be missing out on some great ghost stories.
Most of Wakefield's output had been out of print for decades until Ash-Tree Press reprinted his work in the late `90s and early `00s in the form of exceptionally fine hardcover editions. Unfortunately, these were limited to small print runs, and most are now hard to find. Enter the eBook!
The Kindle edition of They Return at Evening works well. A table of contents links to the individual stories, and the original cover art from the Ash-Tree reprint is included.
If you appreciate creepy tales of vengeful ghosts and demons, They Return at Evening likely has something you'll (shudderingly) enjoy.
H.R. Wakefield was one of the best writers right up there with Sheridan LeFanu,
Algernoon Blackwood, Vincent O'Sullivan and A.M. Burrage.
It's too bad that when this great author that died of cancer in the late 1980's not even a word was said in the newspapers about his death & his invaluable contributions.
He deserved then, deserves now and for centuries to come the highest honor as one of the best writers whose stories ,any of us has the honor and pleasure to read.
Another forgotten author was the great Vincent O'Sullivan that at the end of his life in the 1940's died in obscurity in Paris , in extreme, extreme poverty and going hungry most of the time.
How sad! that these great writers were not given the place in literary history that they certainly deserved during their life time.
We should give them finally now their place .
"The Red Lodge" was genuinely and honestly creepy. Sitting on my porch and reading this one in the fading daylight had me jumping at every unexplained noise. A VERY evocative tale. And "The Seventeenth Hole at Duncaster" came at me from out of the blue. I'd heard nothing about this story (The secretary of the Duncaster Golf Club begins to realize that cutting down those trees to alter the course of the 17th hole...was a bad idea.), and was very pleased with the chills it gave me. All in all...this was an excellent collection.
Highly recommended to all readers!
