William P. Holden’s erudite 1963 edition of Beware The Cat is now available online. An excellent introduction, and then a solid transcription of the Elizabethan English version of the novel. It’s effectively the first novel in English, and certainly the first horror novel. My ‘modern English’ adaptation and abridgement of Beware The Cat is available in my book Tales of Lovecraftian Cats (horrible pun intended). The story has many macabre and fantastical elements, and the main tale opens in North Staffordshire.
