The uncanny is, more often than not, a part of everyday life. It usually occurs when it is least expected, but can arise when wished for. the uncanny is that which is considered unnatural. With each occurrence it leads another victim down an untraveled path. the path may lead to danger-or more. These stories document the uncanny, at its best and at its most horrifying: A cammera from another era holds a secret both intriguing and terrifying. A newborn child who bears a striking resemblance to his father..and doesn't appear to be quite human. A blind man whose four remaining senses have become so keen that nothing escapes his observations...even murder.
Carnegie Medalist Robert Westall has masterfully woven five tales that, like shadows in a dark corner; are not real-but never actually disappear.
