Über den Autor
Walter John de la Mare (1873 - 1956) was an English poet, short story writer and novelist. He is probably best remembered for his works for children, for his poem "The Listeners" and for a small yet highly acclaimed selection of subtle psychological horror stories, amongst them "Seaton's Aunt" and "All Hallows". His 1921 novel Memoirs of a Midget won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction and his post-war Collected Stories for Children won the 1947 Carnegie Medal for British children's books.
Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
