Demons by Daylight is a collection of stories by author Ramsey Campbell. Released in 1973, it was the author's second short-story collection, after The Inhabitant of the Lake and Less Welcome Tenants.
Campbell had completed work on the stories for it by 1968, and it was scheduled for publication in 1971; however, due to the 1971 death of editor and Arkham House co-founder August Derleth, the collection was delayed a further two years; it finally saw print in 1973.
Book is solid and clean, without bumping; corners are sharp; black binding cloth is clean and shiny with a minor smudge on the back; gilt lettering on spine is bright; pages are clean and bright.
Dust jacket front is clean, bright, unblemished and unchipped; flaps are clean and bright with original price ($5.00) unclipped; small adhesive price sticker ($6.00) over original price; rear cover is clean and bright.
Overall, this is a fine copy of the book in a fine dust jacket.CONTENTS
