Description

I came across this by accident and bought it not really knowing what I was getting into. The only thing I had to go on was the fact that on the back, it gets praised by the master horror writer, H.P. Lovecraft. While it was never as creepy as Lovercraft's work, it was very good. The book Ancient Sorceries and other Weird Tales has a small collection of Blackwood's stories, but what will be interesting to our group would be Ancient Sorceries , for which the anthology is named. I won't bother with spoiler text, because, if you pay any attention at all to what you're reading, you'll figure out what's going on right away.
A shy man traveling through France decides that he can't take the crowded train anymore and decides to get off at a small town. The town has a dark secret though and at night, all the people turn into cats. It's much creepier than I can make it sound just by explaining it, so you'll have to read it to really appreciate it.
