The book begins with “The Wood on the Hill”, a short story about a bourgeois woman who is soon to learn a terrifying lesson concerning her complete disregard for anyone other than herself.
The second tale, “The Candle in the Cloud”, is a dark fantasy novella which follows three children who discover a magical candle that transports them to a world where a plague-cloud is destroying everything in its wake.
These two tales, the first ever written by Clive, are offered here for the very first time. Their production has been lovingly supervised by Clive himself to ensure that these are not mere books, but works of art to be cherished. Complete with original illustrations and appendices on select editions, First Tales is sure to delight everyone from longtime fans to new readers.
