Elizabeth Walter was a novelist, short story writer, translator and for thirty years from 1961 editor of The Collins Crime Club. Her supernatural, eerie and uncanny tales are collected in Snowfall & Other Chilling Events (1965), The Sin Eater & Other Scientific Impossibilities (1967), Davy Jones's Tale & Other Supernatural Stories (1971), Come And Get Me & Other Uncanny Invitations (1973) and Dead Woman & Other Haunting Experiences (1975). Long out of print, now all her 31 short stories are being collected in one volume from Shadow Publishing


Positively brilliant. They should rank as classics among occult stories. The character building and atmosphere are superb. Dennis Wheatley on ‘The Sin Eater’

Walter was a very private person, but in his informative introduction, the book's editor, Dave Brzeski, has researched snippets of bibliographic information from her days with William Collins. In addition he discusses her writing and reviews the adaptations of her stories on television.
