hand to whatever noble task was presented to him. Should it be required,
this extended to the hunting of supernatural creatures.
In these four stories, Juliet E. McKenna revisits the fine Victorian
tradition of the monster mystery. Drawing on the works of Sir Arthur
Conan Doyle, H.G. Wells, Robert Louis Stephenson and the sadly neglected
Bertram Fletcher Robinson, McKenna brings her own take to tales of
hunting down that which should not be.
The book is illustrated with pictures by Nancy Farmer.
