Heard your name called when there was no-one near?

  1. I discovered August Derleth and this collection way back in the sixties when he was already famous as one of those who continued or extended the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P.Lovecraft. They don’t write them like that any more. If you like the tradiitonal ghost story or spooky tale this might be right down your alley.
