The Moons at Your Door: An Anthology of Hallucinatory Tales
David Tibet, ed.
Thirty hallucinatory tales selected by David Tibet (Current 93)
“The stories that I have collected here in The Moons At Your Door continue to enthrall and terrify me. They all spell how close is the darkness, how bubbly and slyly it may seep into our lives and change them utterly.” —David Tibet (from the introduction)
This fantastic anthology of strange fiction and hallucinatory tales collects chilling stories by many innovators of the weird, while drawing attention to little-known, and shamefully underrepresented or forgotten, scribes of the macabre.
The Moons At Your Door collects over 30 tales, both familiar and unknown from
Robert Aickman, Algernon Blackwood, DK Broster, AM Burrage, RW Chambers, Aleister Crowley, Elizabeth Gaskell, WW Jacobs, MR James, LA Lewis, Thomas Ligotti, Arthur Machen, Guy de Maupassant, Perrault, Thomas De Quincey, Saki, Count Stenbock and HR Wakefield. The volume also includes extracts and translations by the author from Babylonian, Coptic and Biblical texts alongside poems and fairy tales.
Founder of the long running cult band Current 93, David Tibet is widely known as an artist and songwriter. His song cycles present a rich vein of ethereal imagery, arcane reference, and the supernatural, creating their own sound-worlds of heartfelt and mysterious poignancy.
The book's cover and frontispiece features artwork by Tibet.
