Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Things Beyond Midnight

Things Beyond Midnight

William F. Nolan

Science Fiction & Fantasy / Horror

A classic collection of dark fantasy from the co-creator of Logan's Run.ReviewA fine artist and craftsman, working here at the peak of his powers. -- Joe R. Lansdale "I am terrified, delighted and truly moved by William F. Nolan's best work... he makes a permanent dent in our memories, Nolan is able to create a real atmosphere of ultimate terror, causing the reader to live out his nightmares."—Ray Bradbury "His sense of what frightens us has been honed to razor sharpness. Nolan is a master of horror fantasy."—Charles L. Grant "A dedicated and gifted writer."—Richard Matheson "Because Bill Nolan's talents are so varied and his interests so many—novels, biographies, screenplays—we have had only a handful of his short tales of horror and suspense. But even a single book of his stories is worth several volumes from other writers. Few can match his insight into the nasty side of human nature or the casual ease with which he tells stories of awful unpleasantness. Nolan is one of the masters of us all; Things Beyond Midnight is an important and basic book in the literature of fear, one to be welcomed by anyone who loves a good scare."—Alan Ryan "Nolan's work, beautifully-wrought, has color, feeling, flavor... He often reveals character through sensory reaction—and his realization of action description is probably unique."—Dennis EtchisonOne of horror's best storytellers. -- Peter StraubTable of Contents*Dedication*ACKNOWLEDGMENTS*Epigraph*FOREWORDINTRODUCTIONAUTHOR’S PREFACESATURDAY’S SHADOWTHE POOLSTARBLOODINTO THE LION’S DENA REAL NICE GUYDEATH DECISIONFAIR TRADEHE KILT IT WITH A STICKVIOLATIONTHE PARTNERSHIPDEAD CALLTHE UNDERDWELLERSOMETHING NASTYLONELY TRAIN A’COMIN’THE ZURICH SOLUTIONONE OF THOSE DAYSDARK WINNERKELLY, FREDRIC MICHAEL: 1928COINCIDENCETHE PARTY (A Teleplay)
