Very fruitful visit to the local Poundland shop today, as there was a stack of Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural books. A few I already had, but I picked up Wagner the Werewolf, Dr Nikola Master Criminal, The Black Veil, Sherlock Holmes and the Hentzau Affair, The Crimson Blind, and Uncanny Stories by May Sinclair. A nice little selection to add to the to-be-read pile.
I bought a stack of Wordsworth books a while back at a local used/remainder bookstore and finally worked my way through the last of them (J. H. Riddell's Night Shivers, which I found surprisingly enjoyable--maybe more for the strong characterization and social realism, if that's the right term, than for the plots and supernatural content) a few days ago.
Another was Uncanny Stories. This one I didn't like so much; I put Sinclair in the "too stream-of-consciousness for my taste" category along with Henry James and Edith Wharton. Somebody likes her a lot, however.
I joined this forum less than 48 hours ago. In that time I discovered the Wordsworth Editions. ordered 4 for a little over a tenner and had them delivered today ! All of which sounds great except that this means being a member of this group costs me £5 a day :-)
Here's what I ordered for my reading list
Aleister Crowley "The Drug and Other Stories (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)"
H.P. Lovecraft "The Whisperer in Darkness: Collected Stories (Wordsworth Mystery & the Supernatural): 1 (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)"
H.P. Lovecraft "The Horror in the Museum: Collected Short Stories Vol. 2 (Mystery & Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)"
Arthur Conan Doyle "Tales of Unease (Wordsworth Mystery & the Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)"
