Originally published in French in 1925, Whiskey Tales immediately established the reputation of the Belgian master of the weird, Jean Ray, whose writings in the coming years would come to chart out a literary meeting ground between H.P. Lovecraft and Charles Dickens. Taking us from ship's prow to port, from tavern to dead-end lane, these early tales are ruled by the spirits of whiskey and fog, blurring the borders between humor and horror, sentimental and sinister, real and imagined.
