Another sophisticated horror novel from Sarban.
Here's some information from the Wiki:
"Described by no less an authority than E F Bleiler as excellent, The Doll Maker is the story of Clare Lydgate, a young woman studying at boarding school for her Oxford scholarship examinations. In the evenings, she escapes the school grounds by climbing over the wall of Brackenbine Hall. It is here that she encounters the charismatic and mysterious Niall Sterne, the Doll Maker of the title. This is a subtle, intelligent and compelling tale of horror. The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural describes Sarban's stories as nicely written, with solid characterizations, convincingly detailed backgrounds . . . and a fine sense of pacing and atmosphere. It notes that The Doll Maker is Sarban's most intriguing work, and that Niall Sterne offers no ordinary seduction, and there is a delicate horror in his beautiful, sterile doll-world, the antithesis of life itself."
Like all the books I assemble on Mobile Read, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.
I hope you enjoy it.
