Description

Following the great success of our Gothic Fantasy deluxe edition short story compilations, including Cosy Crime, Murder Mayhem and Lost Worlds, this latest in the series is packed with amateur detectives
solving mysterious murders, suspicious butlers and terrifying encounters set in locked rooms, stately mansions, haunted castles and eerily silent libraries.

This collection contains our usual mix of classic and brand new writing, with delightful tales of dastardly dealings from Wilkie Collins, R. Austin Freeman, Anna Katharine Green, Thomas W. Hanshew, E.W. Hornung, Gaston Leroux, Guy de Maupassant, Edgar Wallace and Oscar Wilde. Of course, new stories from contemporary authors give a voice to new writers through our open submission windows.
