Halloween Reading

The Deseret Alphabet edition of A Study in Scarlet has been so overwhelmingly successful—I’ve sold a grand total of one copy, and that was my own—I thought I’d follow it up with something appropriately spooky for Halloween.   I selected a total of fourteen stories and one poem by Edgar Allan Poe, put them all together, and added the beautiful illustrations by Harry Clarke.  The result is Tales of the Macabre (Deseret Alphabet edition).

This is a hardback and is therefore priced even more outrageously than A Study in Scarlet: $30.00 per copy.  I’m still going through Lulu, alas. I’m working on something better and cheaper. But meanwhile—well, it's got pretty pictures!
