Half an hour ago a second courier knocked at the door with a large cardboard box. It's like my birthday. It was too hot for the dog to bark. The box contained four books sent to me by editor Tom Avery as a thank you as a bonus for my contributions to his on line magazine Night & Day. I had no idea what his selection would contain. One book the smallest stood out. Haunted Air. A collection of Anonymous Hallowe'en Photographs. America c.1875 - 1955. Ossian Brown. Three photos from the book published by Jonathan Cape. Trick or Treat?  Treat. Beautiful.

  1. Seriously creepy. For some reason I'm reminded of the kids' party scene in Night of the Demon (b/w movie based on MR James)... Hope you are well.
