Since the days of the Victorian Era, there have been a few brave, intrepid souls who stood fast in the battle against the unknown. They would come to be known as 'Occult Detectives' and their ranks swelled to include such legends as Carnacki the Ghost Finder, John Silence, Auguste Dupin among many others.Here, for the first time, are eight ALL-NEW tales of those who, when others turn and run from horror, move forward often armed only with their own courage and wits. These stories run the gamut in settings and characters and showcase some of the best writers in the field today. Included are new tales by Charles R. Rutledge, Adrian Cole, William Meikle, Amanda DeWees and more. Included is an essay by noted scholar Mike Ashley on the formation of the Occult Detective genre and its history.When you hear that bump in the night will you shrink from fear or become, like the heroes within these pages, an Occult Detective and plunge fearlessly into the unknown? Perhaps your tale is yet to be told!
