In rural England, zombies attack a sleepy Yorkshire village – a Thames-side urchin falls foul of a vengeful spirit – a plot to mix arsenic and absinthe goes horribly wrong – ghostly spectres haunt the streets of gaslit London – and a clockmaker becomes obsessed with the passing of time.

Welcome to the dark and fantastical world of Raven Dane, where a curse brings with it a fatal chill and an aging relative is a demon in disguise.

16 tales of Victorian horror, steampunk adventures and dark, deadly obsession.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Raven Dane

Raven Dane is an award-winning fantasy author based in the UK. Her published works include the highly acclaimed Legacy of the Dark Kind series of dark fantasy/sci-fi crossover novels (Blood TearsBlood Lament and Blood Alliance).

However, Raven’s skills in fiction don’t end there. Her comedy fantasy The Unwise Woman of Fuggis Mire – a scurrilous spoof of high fantasy clichés – was met with great enthusiasm by the reading public. In more recent years Raven has met with critical acclaim for her steampunk/occult adventures Cyrus Darian and the Technomicron and Cyrus Darian and the Ghastly Horde.

Cyrus Darian and the Technomicron was the winner of the best novel award at the inaugural Victorian Steampunk Society awards 2012.

Raven also has many short stories published in anthologies including one in Full Fathom Forty, a celebration of 40 years of the British Fantasy Society, and the first annual of ghost stories from Spectral Press, called the 13 Ghosts of Christmas.

Further works include poetry, published in an anthology of pagan verse.

Her third Cyrus Darian novel was published in 2014.

  1. Telos Publishing

    ‘Overall, this is a very strong collection of stories. Several made my ongoing list of potential candidates for best short story of the year. No less than three of the stories left me wanting to see more of the protagonists in the future.’ David Brzeski, The British Fantasy Society
