Sweetheart, Sweetheart

Bernard Taylor


One year after publishing his startling debut novel The Godsend, Bernard Taylor followed it up with Sweetheart, Sweetheart, a longer, more richly complex tale of ghostly romance. Always a popular theme, and so outstanding that it was picked for inclusion in Horror: Another Hundred Best Books by the late, great Charles L. Grant. Generally recognized as the foremost American author of the ghost story, Mr. Grant called it “The best ghost story that I have ever read, and am ever likely to read!”
      This chilling tale unfolds as David Warwick, expatriate Englishman residing in New York, has a premonition of doom involving his twin brother Colin. Rushing back to England, Warwick is too late, as both his brother and his lovely wife have died sudden, shocking deaths. The villagers are reluctant to share much in the way of information. They seemingly know more than they are telling, but how much more? A lengthy novel of well over 300 pages, Sweetheart, Sweetheart provides ample room for Taylor to slowly build to a crescendo of horror that will leave readers spent as they’ve just been dragged through an emotional wringer by one of the finest craftsman our genre has ever produced.
      Limited to only 250 copies signed by the author, introducer, and cover artist, the book has a ribbon marker and full color endpapers. Despite simultaneous publication in both the U.S.A. and Great Britain, Sweetheart, Sweetheart has been unavailable in hardcover for forty years, resulting in high prices on the secondary market.
