Those interested in Hanns Heinz Ewers will enjoy Lemuria Volume I, a collection of short stories by rival fantasy author Karl Hans Strobl.
This book contains the stories:
At a Crossroads
The Repulsion of the Will
The Tomb at Pere Lachaise
The Wicked Nun
The Bogomil Stone
The Manuscript of Juan Serrano
Of these stories only "The Head" and "The Wicked Nun" were ever translated into English. As always, these are my own translations of these stories. Lemuria is too large to publish in one volume so I am publishing it in several volumes that include other stories by Karl Hans Strobl from "The Crystal Ball and other Stories" and "The Orchid Garden".
I am currently finishing up Lemuria Volume I and should have it available by the end of February. (This month). This will include hard cover, quality paperback, epub and pdf editions.

I'm pleased to announce that "Lemuria Book 1" is now available in English for the first time ever!
This is the first collection of short stories by Karl Hans Strobl to have ever been translated into the English language. Karl Hans Strobl was noted for his short fiction, particularly his dark fantasy fiction and "Lemuria" collects some of his finest stories.
You can sense his passion and zest for living in these pages.
These stories come at a time when "Steam Punk" is popular. His stories fit into this genre quite well and it is astonishing how modern and readable these fantastic stories are. As an avid reader of science fiction and fantasy, I've become convinced that there is a power and force within these stories that is very hard to find in today's world.
Stories include: The Mermaid; At a Cross Roads; The Witch Finder; The Head; The Repulsion of the Will; My Adventure with Jonas Barg; The Manuscript of Juan Serrano; Familiar Moves; The Tomb at Pere La Chaise; The Wicked Nun; The Bogumil Stone; Master Jericho
