'This book collects thirty-one of Favenc's best stories, many published here for the first time since their original publication; and aims to showcase Favenc's talent as the most important Australian colonial writer of Gothic and supernatural fiction. The stories span the period 1875-1907, and demonstrate the richness and variety of his art, making this a major publishing event for enthusiasts of nineteenth-century crime and weird fiction' (back cover).
