I have added two photographs of Bleiler's lengthy inclusion of this book in his genre opus 'The Guide to Supernatural Fiction'. The entry covers each short story in this collection of Horror Fantasy Tales which include demonic artists, diabolic musicians, soul transference, tree spirits, violent bird revenge and an evil chimpanzee!! Reginald compares him stylistically to Lord Dunsany.
