Unique edition which brings together some of Scott's best short stories, each containing an element of the supernatural.

One of the main forces in early nineteenth-century literature, Sir Walter Scott was not only among the greatest novelists of his time, but influenced generations of writers, including literary giants such as Stendhal and Tolstoy. Though chiefly remembered for his historical epics Ivanhoe, Rob Roy and Guy Mannering, Scott penned a number of short stories which have been unjustly eclipsed by the enduring fame of his longer works.

This volume brings together some of Scott's best short stories, each containing an element of the supernatural – a ghostly apparition in 'The Tapestried Chamber', a tale of magic in 'My Aunt Margaret's Mirror', grotesque diablerie in 'Wandering Willie's Tale', the power of second sight in 'The Two Drovers' and the inevitability of Fate in 'The Highland Widow' – all revealing the author's great talent in the shorter-fiction form.

Walter Scott is an interdisciplinary artist working in comics, drawing, video, performance, and sculpture. His graphic novel series Wendy chronicles the continuing misadventures of a young artist in a satirical imagining of the contemporary art world. Scott's eponymous party girl has previously been featured in three graphic novels Wendy; Wendy's Revenge and Wendy: Master of Art as well as in Canadian Art; Art in America; The New Yorker; The New York Times and MoMA Magazine. Scott has been nominated or longlisted for the Ignatz Awards, Canada Reads, the Believer Book Award, and the Doug Wright Award, and finally, the Sobey Art Award—considered to be the preeminent fine art award in Canada.
