Frederick Cowles Bibliography

A comprehensive bibliography of Frederick Ignatius Cowles (1900 - 1948): English author of supernatural fiction, English travelogues, history, folklore, and children's books. Cowles' supernatural fiction is similar, and compares favorably, to that of M. R. James.

Print editions of Cowles' supernatural fiction are rare and quite expensive (1st ed. copies of The Horror of Abbot's Grange and The Night Wind Howls have been spotted at thousands of dollars). Fortunately, this work is available in eBook format from Ash-Tree Press and Amazon.
