Description

Carnacki, the Ghost-Finder is a collection of occult detective short stories and is listed as No. 53 in Queen's Quorum: A History of the Detective-Crime Short Story As Revealed by the 100 Most Important Books Published in this Field Since 1845 by Ellery Queen.

During their original run, the magazine that published them boasted: "Complaints continue to reach us from all parts of the country to the effect that Mr. William Hope Hodgson's Carnacki stories are producing a widespread epidemic of Nervous Prostration! So far from being able to reassure or calm our nervous readers, we are compelled to warn them that 'The Whistling Room, ' which we publish this month, is worse than ever. Our advertising manager had to go to bed for two days after reading the advance sheets; a proofreader has sent in his resignation; and, worst of all, our smartest office boy--But this is no place to bewail or seek for sympathy. Yet another of those stories will appear in April!" (This jacketless hardcover edition is intended for the library trade.)
