Dark Lantern Tales
Was it great literature? Of course not! This wasn’t literature for the ages – it was sensational entertainment for the week it was published.
Enter the world of action-packed, ephemeral crime thrillers of the late 1800s. Consider it Historical Fiction written when it was simply…Fiction.
I am launching Dark Lantern Tales to publish “lost” fiction from the late 19th century in new editions. Each ebook includes a Victorian era tale of mystery and detection, plus historical information, a glossary of Victorian slang terms, and period illustrations. I have respectfully edited the text for the modern reader and I believe you will find a great story in each title!
