As boys, Jimmie Tunstall was John Talbot's implacable foe, never ceasing to taunt, torment, and bully him. Years later, John is married and living in a small coastal town when he learns, much to his chagrin, that his old adversary has just moved to the same town. Before long the harassment begins anew until finally, driven to desperation, John murders his tormentor. Soon he starts to suffer from frightening hallucinations and his personality and physical appearance begin to alter, causing him increasingly to resemble the man he killed. Is it merely the effect of his guilt, or is it the manifestation of something supernatural-and evil? The tension builds until the chilling final scene, when the horrifying truth will be revealed about the killer-and the slain.The works of the prolific and phenomenally popular Sir Hugh Walpole (1884-1941) have been neglected since his death, but his "macabre" tales, of which The Killer and the Slain (1942) is the best, deserve rediscovery.

In recent times things have become very confusing and we have begun to see in book stores and on websites speculation about future events, based on verses and hadeeths which refer to these future events concerning the signs of the Hour. This unique book presents the answers to all the important questions in reference to the Quran and the Sunnah. You will read very interesting discussions about the signs of the Hour like : Dajjal (False Messiah), the Descent of Eesa (Jesus), the Emergence of Yajooj and Majooj, Three Landslides, The Smoke, The Beast, The Rising of the Sun from its place of setting etc. This is a wonderful book. It clears the doubts and misunderstandings about the Signs of the Hour and we see the true picture of the issues in the light of the Quran and the Sunnah. This book will change the way on how to look at this life. You will read it twice or thrice as the information given was never discussed in such detail and splendid way. Excellent information and not merely based on theory but all of it comprises of Hadiths and Quranic Ayahs followed by explanation for layman readers. It is the best book to refer others to read.

Although readers of detective fiction ordinarily expect to learn the mystery's solution at the end, there is another kind of detective story—the history of which encompasses writers as diverse as Poe, Borges, Robbe-Grillet, Auster, and Stephen King—that ends with a question rather than an answer. The detective not only fails to solve the crime, but also confronts insoluble mysteries of interpretation and identity. As the contributors to Detecting Texts contend, such stories belong to a distinct genre, the "metaphysical detective story," in which the detective hero's inability to interpret the mystery inevitably casts doubt on the reader's similar attempt to make sense of the text and the world. Detecting Texts includes an introduction by the editors that defines the metaphysical detective story and traces its history from Poe's classic tales to today's postmodernist experiments. In addition to the editors, contributors include Stephen Bernstein, Joel Black, John T. Irwin, Jeffrey T. Nealon, and others.

The second volume of Hugh Walpole's collected strange fiction Sir Hugh Walpole was one of the most popular and prolific British authors of the first half of the 20th century. After the publication of his first novel, 'The Wooden Horse', in 1909 he produced one significant work each year including the acclaimed 'Herries' series. Born in New Zealand in 1884, the son of an Anglican clergyman, Walpole was committed to becoming a writer and encouraged in his ambition by Henry James and Arnold Bennett. A. C. Benson was also a mentor and early influence upon his writing. Despite his acknowledged talent as a storyteller, Walpole's work has been largely ignored since his death in 1941, in part because he was savagely lampooned by Somerset Maugham's fictional characterisation of him in 'Cakes & Ale'. Walpole, in keeping with many of his contemporaries, wrote in several genres of fiction and among his thirty-six novels, five volumes of short stories and two plays are historical, juvenile and even detective stories. His associations with A. C. Benson, Henry James, H. G. Wells and the fact that Horace Walpole (author of the first gothic novel, 'The Castle of Otranto') and Richard Harris Barham (author of the 'Ingoldsby Legends') were both among his ancestors surely stimulated his taste for gothic and macabre fiction. In fact, during the 1930s Walpole edited two well received anthologies of 'creepy stories' in which some of his own material appeared. His own literary excursions into the world of the ghostly and bizarre, which remain highly regarded by aficionados of supernatural fiction, include several novels and a substantial number of short stories all of which are included in this three volume Leonaur collected edition. Included in this second volume are the novel 'The Killer and the Slain' and thirteen short stories of the strange and unusual including 'Seashore Macabre. A Moment's Experience', 'The Staircase', 'Miss Morganhurst', 'The Snow' and 'The Faithful Servant'. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
