Much of Christian theology is centered around the promise that eventually Christ will make a triumphant return to earth. But what might actually happen when that event finally transpires? That's the fascinating thought experiment at the center of Richard Marsh's novel A Second Coming. Best known as a writer of early horror and mysteries, Marsh's take on the Resurrection is decidedly unique.

A best-selling and prolific author of the late 19th century and the Edwardian period, Marsh is best known now for his supernatural thriller novel The Beetle, which was published the same year as Bram Stoker's Dracula (1897), and was initially even more popular.The Beetle remained in print until 1960. Marsh produced nearly 80 volumes of fiction and numerous short stories, in genres including horror, crime, romance and humour. Many of these have been republished recently, beginning with The Beetle in 2004. Marsh's grandson Robert Aickman was a notable writer of short "strange stories".
