The Body Snatcher and Other TaleseBook - 2001
The Gothic tale of "The Body Snatcher" concerns a young medical student's dealings with grave robbers who provide corpses to dissect and study -- a practice that takes on increasingly sinister dimensions. Swirling seas, dangerous reefs, and inhospitable islanders provide the grim backdrop for a tale of greed, lunacy, and unbridled fear in "The Merry Men, " the name given by the inhabitants of Aros to the fearsome breakers that pound their tiny Scottish isle. "The Bottle Imp" -- an intricately told tale of love and adventure, avarice and envy, and good and evil -- centers on a magical bottle that provides its owner with all he desires, but at a great cost.
