As he twists the key and slowly creeps into the grand gothic mansion left to him in his father's will, Salem's life takes a decidedly unusual turn. Aside from the money and house, his father's secret legacy includes an unfinished battle with creatures from a world beyond ours. Immediately thrown into the sinister conflict, Salem must make contact with his guardian familiar and get help from the colourful performers of Dr Kinoshita's Circus of Unearthly Delights, if he is to ward off the evil spirits and avoid the tragic fate of his father. This is for fans of Tim Burton, Edward Gorey, H.P. Lovecraft and Aubrey Beardsley. Deluxe, highly-desirable paperback edition is perfect as an affordable gift or for collectors alike.
