There is a lake in the Seven Valley, near a town called Brichester. It is an eerie, haunted place, both by day and by night. Night especially though, is a time when no one in their right mind would go anywhere near it, or those oddly deserted houses that stand, albeit barely, on the edge of the shore. But why? What is it that moves about in that lake, a thing that makes its presence known with three sinister glowing eyes that protrude from beneath the water?
Some believe it is an entity that travelled to Earth, many thousands of years ago inside a hollow meteor.
Certainly, anyone who falls asleep near the lake dreams of this, and worse occurrences. And, those that sleep near the lake, or wander too close to it, often disappear forever, or even worse, return strangely altered. The locals won't help you; the police steer clear from it. But still, the horror, the inhabitant of the lake, seems to draw souls relentlessly, despite, or even because of the dangers.
This book contains stories written by eighteen of these hapless souls, men and women that dared approach the lake and later, with their sanity and bodies in tatters, return to write down what they experienced.
Here you will discover the truth about the inhabitant of the lake, in tales that are sure to shock, frighten, and entertain you. The eighteen tales, including the original exposure to the world of the lake's sinister denizen, in Ramsey Campbell's The Inhabitant of the Lake, are written by some of the best storytellers in weird fiction today. These writers follow in Campbell's footsteps to both celebrate his contributions to weird fiction and continue and expand upon a being we know as Gla'aki.
