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.
But now a girl has been murdered and the Derbyshire police are taking a closer look at a loner who travels from place to place, picking up work as he goes. Worse, Dan realises the murder involves the hidden world he was born into. When no one else can see the truth, who will see justice done?
A modern fantasy rooted in the ancient myths and folklore of the British Isles.
The Color of MagicM is Terry Pratchett's maiden voyage through the now-legendary land of Discworld. This is where it all begins -- with the tourist Twoflower and his wizard guide, Rincewind.
