DE MARIGNY'S CLOCK
“De Marigny’s Clock” is set in France at the Chateau de Marigny. The story is told in a diary format with entry dates and times, etc. The storyline concerns a writer who rents the chateau and the strange events that happen to him there, including the appearance of the title clock.
Two points – sometime ago the story was to be a part of a collection entitled DE MARIGNY’S CLOCK & OTHERS. The art you see here was a rough draft of the cover art for the collection, and was the work of Anita Moore. Excellent work although the collection never materialized and the cover art remains unfinished.
Secondly, I hadn’t known until after I had written the story that Brian Lumley had also written a story with the same title. Of course, both stories are dramatically different, sharing only the title.
