A masterful horror tale by the author of The Sound of His Horn.
The Doll Maker tells the tale of Clare Lydgate, a young woman studying at boarding school for her Oxford scholarship examinations. In the evenings she escapes the school grounds by climbing over the wall of Brackenbine Hall. It is here that she encounters the charismatic and mysterious Niall Sterne, the Doll Maker. This is a subtle, intelligent, and compelling tale of horror.Sarban (1910-1989) was a pseudonym for John William Wall, a British writer and diplomat. He wrote several works of speculative fiction, including The Sound of His Horn and The Doll Maker.
