Overview

When inhuman monsters walk the Earth, threatening the good and the helpless, Justice has no stronger defenders than Harry Dickson and his assistant Tom Wills, who fight the forces of evil and cast them back into the Darkness from whence they came. Harry Dickson began as an unauthorized Sherlock Holmes pulp series in Germany in 1907, before changing its name and morphing into a hugely popular saga in Holland, Belgium and France, with 178 issues published between 1927 and 1938, especially after it was entrusted to the editorship of Belgian horrormeister Jean Ray. This volume includes three original episodes and one short story: The Heir of Dracula: From the rat-infested sewers of Limehouse to the dark forests of Bavaria, Dickson hunts for the mysterious red-eyed vampire, Count Dragomin. The Iron Temple: Deep beneath London, monstrous creatures engage in bloody sacrifices in their amazing, futuristic lair.The Return of the Gorgon: A beautiful but deadly woman who may be a reincarnation of Medusa has the power to turn men to stone. The Curse of the Crimson Heart: Meet Dickson's mentor, armchair detective Mortimer Triggs. This famous Holmesian pastiche has been translated by award-winning authors Jean-Marc & Randy Lofficier and includes a detailed foreword about the Harry Dickson phenomenon.
