« Mrs. Robinson's Disgrace: The Private Diary of a Victorian Lady | Main | This Week's Acquisitions »

October 25, 2012



Might I recommed "The Case of Mr. Lucraft" (a/k/a "The Appetite of Mr. Lucraft") by Walter Besant and James Rice. A desperate young man sells something intangible to a sinister older man, however it is NOT his soul.

Also, I was reading Arthur Machen's THE THREE IMPOSTORS last week. This is supposed to be a novel, but it is really a collection of stories (some better than others) built around a frame story. Of interest here because one character makes a passing reference to ROBERT ELSMERE.


Thanks for the heads up!
