A NIGHT ON THE MOOR AND OTHER TALES OF DREAD by R Murray GilchristOne might call them love stories except that the emotions of the characters so freuently fierce and unhealthy provide much of the horror Often Gilchrist dwells on the psychology of his characters than on the actual events which can take place with devastating suddenness once they begin Here we find love as a type of emotional enslavement love that brings pain jealousy that destroys and a common theme that runs through the majority of the tales love and death friendship and deathMany of the stories in this volume ualify as fantasy tales of ghosts basilisks and vampiric women but the settings plots and characters are so fantastic themselves one almost fails to notice that a supernatural element has crept in There is occasionally something Lovecraftian about the stories The Crimson Weaver is a good example with touches of Dunsany and Smith There are some like Witch In Grain where the style is even archaic But in most of the tales Gilchrist maintains his own style his own voice highly ornate by modern standards yet in the very excess of the language lies one disturbing element which highlights the sensual decadence of the stories themselves Gilchrist was fond of contrasting beauty at its most sublime beauty in woman beauty in nature with elements that were subtlely grotesue Sometimes it is the passion itself that is grotesue as love becomes an agony a madness Even friendship between his characters especially between men and women can be tremendously intense Passion may come about through a meeting of the minds a shared interest in art philosophy religion When this happens loves seems to exist on a higher plane but only for a time because always the seductions of the flesh creep in And Gilchrist s heroes have a tendency to be transported by love simply because the beloved is divinely beautiful not because she is inherently loveableIt all sounds frightfully overwrought and sensational doesn t it And at times it is Yet there is a fascination too in the elegance and luxuriance of the language the fervor and the violence For those with a taste for decadent VictorianEdwardian horror I recommend this book very highly though with the suggestion that the stories be read one or two at a time rather than overloading modern sensibilities by reading too many at once If it were possible I d give this book 45 stars

R Murray Gilchrist s florid decadent prose style can be overstuffed in that way emblematic of the excesses of the 1890s but the scintillating decadent elements contrast profoundly with the brooding ragged scenery creating an impression of the fleeting twinkle of ephemera being smothered by the infinitely unknowable moors Many of the stories do not feature overt supernatural horror but they all have the atmosphere of otherworldy dread and the repetitive narratives of doomed lovers murdering one another give the semblance of a repeated ritual ringing throughout the landscape Lovely book Worth it for fans of Machen Shiel and Stenbock s contemporaneous works as an artefact of 1890s wyrd writing

Gilchrist s stories are a uniue fusion of Decadent aestheticism with the classic late VictorianEdwardian supernatural short story The majority of this Wordsworth edition is culled from Gilchrist s first short story collection The Stone Dragon and Other Tragic Romances from 1894 Admittedly similar themes and ideas are repeated But I found myself still interested and enjoying each of Gilchrist s new takes on femmes fatales or doomed love affairs The Lover s Ordeal is a very cool and haunting variation on the traditional vampire tale and The Return is poignant and deliciously dark despite its simplicityAs readers make their way deeper into this particular edition the latter third is comprised of stories from another of Gilchrist s collections called Lords and Ladies 1903 These tales feature a disciplined style and are therefore a bit in keeping with traditional supernatural fiction from the turn of the last century For example The Grotto at Ravensdale and A Night on the Moor are excellent and memorable stories steeped in atmosphere and as the title suggests dread
