Curious Tales ‘have a
curiously-imparted quality of strangeness; the feeling of having strayed
over the border of experience into a world where other dimensions
operate.’ So said one of the original reviewers of these unique stories,
first published in 1951.
- The title story is set on the Northumberland moors,
where Daphne Hazel appears to cross the boundaries of time, becoming
involved with terrifying personalities from the mysterious past.
‘Calmahain’ deals delicately and imaginatively with two children’s
attempts at escape from the grim realities of the Home Front during
World War Two. Sarban shows himself equally at home in the Middle East,
where, against an authentic background of expatriate life, three further
stories explore ancient legends with spine-chilling results.
Ringstones and Other Curious Tales,
Sarban’s first published work, established him amongst critics and
readers as a writer of unusually evocative power.
