Basil Copper – Here Be Daemons

Basil Copper – Here Be Daemons (Sphere, 1978)


Old Mrs. Cartwright
The Knocker At The Portico
The Way The World Died
The Second Passenger
The Treasure Of Our Lady
Justice At The Crossroads
Mrs. Van Donk
The Trodes
The Great Vore

Black Magic novella The Great Vore is arguably the stand-out of this, Copper’s fifth collection. Revenge At The Crossroads sees a stranger fall foul of superstitious villagers when they mistake him for a vampire. The Second Passenger, and a murderer is pursued by the rotting corpse of his victim – hardly original, but one of the best stories of its kind.

Thanks to H. P. Saucecraft for providing the cover scan
