Read full description of the books Cries of Terror:Fear of the unknown - Man's timeless inheritance of pain
We may surround ourselves with the trappings of technology - but in the face of the powers of darkness we are as helpless as our ancestors at the dawn of time. The concrete, plastic and metal cannot keep out the vibration of the unknown which lurks like a mad dog in unseen corners.
Here, in this chilling collection, are stories from writers who have plumbed the deepest, dank recesses of those terrors which jaunt our sleep and bring us suddenly awake, trembling and fearful.
Read information about the authorAnthony Masters was a writer, educator and humanitarian of exceptional gifts and prodigious energy. He was, in the parlance of his spiritual ancestors, the ancient mariners, that rare voyager "as gracious as a trade wind and as dependable as an anchor".
He leaves 11 works of adult fiction – notably, Conquering Heroes (1969), Red Ice (1986, with Nicholas Barker), The Men (1997), The Good and Faithful Servant (1999) and Lifers (2001) – and was in the process of completing another, Dark Bridges, which he thought would be his best. Many of these works carry deep insights into social problems that he gained, over four decades, by helping the socially excluded, be it by running soup kitchens for drug addicts or by campaigning for the civic rights of gypsies and other ethnic minorities.
His non-fiction output was typically eclectic. It ranged from the biographies of such diverse personalities as Hannah Senesh (The Summer that Bled, 1972), Mikhail Bakunin (Bakunin: the father of anarchism, 1974), Nancy Astor (Nancy Astor: a life, 1981) and the British secret service chief immortalised by Ian Fleming in his James Bond books (The Man Who Was M: the life of Maxwell Knight, 1984), to a history of the notorious asylum Bedlam (Bedlam, 1977).
