The Collected Supernatural and Weird Fiction of Grant Allen: Volume 1-One Novel 'Kalee's Shrine', and Nine Short Stories of the Strange and Unusual In (Paperback)
Volume one of the supernatural fiction of Grant Allen
Canadian born, Grant Allen (1848-99) was educated in England and became a notable author of both scientific books and fiction. He is particularly regarded for his promotional activities concerning the theory of evolution. In common with many of the outstanding authors of the Victorian age, Allen was a prolific writer in many areas including detective fiction. His science fiction novel 'The British Barbarians' was published at around the time of H. G. Wells', 'The Time Machine' and also featured time travel in its narrative. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle became a neighbour and friend and assisted Allen in the completion of his last work, 'Hilda Wade'. Grant Allen also produced enough strange and otherworldly tales to fill the two volumes in this Leonaur edition of his excellent and entertaining ghostly stories.
Volume one features the novel Kalee's Shrine and nine short stories of the strange and unusual including 'Our Scientific Observations on a Ghost', 'Pallinghurst Barrow' and 'My New Year's Eve Among the Mummies'.
Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket.
