From official release/information:

Book Description: The twelve 'Tales of Twilight and Borderlands' that make up The Master of the House are in the classic tradition of English ghost stories and tales of the unknown. They are recounted with a powerful sense of place: winter on an unfrequented moor, Oxford railway station in the 1950s, high summer near a legendary Roman camp, a Victorian suburb in London, a college VIII rowing home on a December evening, a railway journey delayed by frost and snow into endless night. The narratives are touched with sardonic humour and a feeling for things past and to come that make the unexpected a sometimes terrible reality.

Contents: Foreword, The Memento Mori, Wolvershiel, Addendum to a Confession, Wings, The Pit, Empty Places, Party Talk, The Double Crossing, Night Music, The Master of the House, The New Inn Hall Inheritance, Where Shadows Lead.
