    The Burial of the Rats: And Other Tales of the Macabre by Bram Stoker

    I knew the site of the hut and the hill behind it up which I had rushed, and in the flickering glow the eyes of the rats still shone with a sort of phosphorescence.

    Beyond his role as the author of the genre-defining novel Dracula, Bram Stoker was also a master of the short story form. This new anthology of fourteen tales draws from every corner of Stoker’s dark writing, ranging from the unnerving and dreamlike in the stories from his 1881 collection Under the Sunset to the grim and horrifying in the classic, thrilling masterpieces ‘The Judge’s House’ and ‘The Burial of the Rats’.

    With a new introduction exploring Stoker’s talent for versatility in his macabre fiction, this volume reflects the full brilliance of the legendary writer with tales of evil doppelgängers, the living dead, nightmarish torture and flesh-hungry rats.
