Notes on the weird – XI

These stories have been written in the hope of giving some pleasant qualms to the reader, so that, if by chance, anyone may be occupying in their perusal a leisure half hour before he goes to bed when the night and house are still, he may perhaps cast an occasional glance into the corners and dark places of the room where he sits, to make sure that nothing unusual lurks in the shadows. For this is the avowed object of ghost-stories, and such tales as deal with the dim unseen forces which occassionallly and perturbingly make themselves manifest. The author therefore fervently wishes his readers a few uncomfortable moments.
