BALEFUL BEASTS: Great Supernatural Stories of the Animal Kingdom

Staring ghost hounds, a telepathic Siamese, a ""Horse of the Invisible"" and ""The Terror of Blue John Gap"" are among the beasts that populate this well-bred selection of classic Anglo-American horror. Only Hugh Walpole's ""The Tiger,"" an animal that is surely more psychological than supernatural, seems quite out of place in this company, but then he does provide something to puzzle over among the professional frissons induced by Conan Doyle, Edith Wharton, Saki, Eric Linklater, and Ambrose Bierce. Pedigreed.
