Walter John de la Mare OM CH (/ˈdɛləˌmɛər/; 25 April 1873 – 22 June 1956) was an English poet, short story writer, and novelist.

Walter John de la Mare OM CH (/ˈdɛləˌmɛər/; 25 April 1873 – 22 June 1956) was an English poet, short story writer, and novelist. He is probably best remembered for his works for children, for his poem "The Listeners", and for a highly acclaimed selection of subtle psychological horror stories, amongst them "Seaton's Aunt" and "All Hallows".

The stories contained in this volume have been selected from four collections entitled The Riddle, The Connoisseur, On the Edge, and The Wind Blows Over.

Better known for his poetry, de la Mare is ripe for rediscovery and a neglected master of the mature strange short story. Just read Walter De La Mare's haunting collection DING DONG BELL, each of the three stories are set in a graveyard and are masterful evocations of mood. His novel Memoirs of a Midget is up there with the finest I have read, and I can't imagine why any lover of strange literature wouldn't appreciate this frequently excellent selection of his finest puzzling, profound, eerie and disquieting short tales. This man was a genius.

Unlike his adult stories, most of Walter de la Mare’s much-loved stories for children remained in print until the 1980s in Faber’s Collected Stories for Children (1947) and the later Puffin version of this (1977); and, apart from ‘The Dutch Cheese’, an early story, they were all of them published for the first time within ten years.

The publication of Short Stories for Children celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Walter de la Mare's death. It is also the culmination of a major literary enterprise.

Gripping and poignant tale of psychic possession concerns Arthur Lawford, who appears to have been possessed by the spirit of a long-dead 18th-century pirate. One of de la Mare's finest occult stories, the novel also deals with domestic trauma, unrequited love and philosophical reflection. New introduction by S. T. Joshi. The publication of Short Stories for Children celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Walter de la Mare's death. For many people, Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) is as great a writer of fiction as of poetry.
