The second book in the Dark Renaissance Books Haunted House series is a new haunted house novella by William Meikle! Fully illustrated by M. Wayne Miller.
The house on the moor held frightening secrets within…and without.
David Blacklaw and Hugh Fraswer were celebrities in the days before it became a dirty word. They had done it all, in grand style—until the mysterious scandal that brought their fame crashing to an end. Now Fraser’s grandson, John, has come to the crumbling Blacklaw ancestral home on the Scottish moors, looking for answers, in search of a story that will make his career.
But what he finds is much more than a cover-up of a scandalous secret. A brooding terror lurks in the shadows of Black law House, something that skitters in the eaves and rustles in the pages of the books in the old library—a dark entity that whispers in John’s ear, seducing and promising. Meanwhile, outside in the mist, something walks the fog-bound moors, getting ever closer to the house even as Jon closes in on the secret.
The race is on for John to find the answer and reap the prize, before the horror takes root in his soul.
CARNACKI operates in shadowy occult realms, on the fringes, in places out of sight and out of mind of normal ever yday people. But sometimes the darkness touches the lives of these ordinary folks, and they find they need help – the kind of help that only Carnacki can provide.
In MR. CHURCHILL’S DILEMMA and THE WATCHER AT THE GATE : Carnacki is called on to help a young Winston Churchill in defeating a menace from the east that threatens hostilities in the years before WW1, and in overseeing an experiment that threatens to expose the whole of South East England to an entity from the Outer Darkness.
In CAPTAIN GAULT’S NEMESIS, THE BLUE EGG and THE GRAY BOATS, Carnacki aids another Hodgson character, the aforesaid Captain, in ridding his vessel of an ancient cursed box, in the procurement of a great Arabian gem, and in the salvage of a nautical government experiment gone disastrously wrong.
“When I first set out to document the casebook of my good friend Sherlock Holmes, there were some cases I approached with a certain degree of trepidation. Holmes has a public face as a man of strict rationality, a stickler for method and observation. But Holmes himself has always been open to more extreme possibilities.”
In these pages you’ll find, among other things, a jade pendant that bestows great power, a fiddle that holds the key to an ancient secret, a lost overcoat that wants to return to its owner, and an encounter with an old foe that imperils the whole of Great Britain. All of them are cases that Holmes and Watson must solve, even if they have to open themselves to extreme possibilities to do so.
