Edited and Introduced by Keith Richmond. Rosaleen Norton was an Australian artist who gained some notoriety in the 1950s and '60s because of her occult beliefs, bohemian life-style, and bizarre and often sensuous artwork. A little known sidelight to her career were the three horror stories she wrote when she was 16 for a popular magazine, "Smith's Weekly". These stories are here printed together for the first time. (Only a very few copies of this book remain available. )
