236 pages: collects nine stories (plus ''How I Write My Books'' by the author) with a 13-page introduction by John Dawson. Texts are taken from the original magazine appearances (1895-1904). L. T. Meade is now remembered, if at all, for her girls? school stories. However, in 1898 the Strand Magazine, famous for its fictions of crime, detection, and the uncanny, proclaimed Meade one of its most popular writers for her contributions to its signature fare. Her stories, widely published in popular fin de siècle magazines, included classic tales of the supernatural, but her specialty was medical or scientific mysteries featuring doctors, scientists, occult detectives, criminal women with weird powers, unusual medical interventions, fantastic scientific devices, murder, mesmerism, and manifestations of insanity. 350 copies printed. With two publicity postcards laid in, plus facsimile signature of the author.
