"Anything can happen in the dark..." After Midnight is a collection of gothic short stories based on the folk legends and cautionary tales of the unknown that were collected in Britain by missing author Sidney Wainwright. All the tales are born from that inane human fascination with mystery and the macabre. From sinister unsolved murders or the exploits of slavers to the realms of the supernatural, and the mysteries of the human mind, these tales heighten the senses and take you back to those childhood fears that we are all drawn to once again when the lights go out.
The tales are presented from a rediscovered manuscript by Sidney Wainwright's friend Archibald Jerome along with his recollections of the illusive man himself, who is perhaps a deeper mystery than any of the stories. Sidney Wainwright's whereabouts and fate remain a mystery to this day.
So sit by the hearth on a dark and stormy night. Read yourself a story or two by firelight. Try to forget the sense that someone is there with you, watching, always just out of sight. I warn you, once the clock chimes midnight, there is no knowing how this tale will end.

Review quote

"I loved every word in this book. There is no doubt that Sidney Wainwright is a brilliant storyteller. Each story, had me wanting to get to the end to find out what happened and at the same time, hanging on to every sentence hoping it would keep me in this eager anticipation for a little longer." - Debbie Carr, Sydney Chic

"An engaging collection of stories told, and relayed, by two interesting men. The collection of Sidney Wainwrights stories in 'After Midnight' are an entertaining read... The story of 'Mr Simms and Mr Redfellow' was a particular favorite of mine among the collection. It was a well rounded ending to a wonderful collection of short stories!" - An Amazon Reader
