    The Ghost Slayers: Thrilling Tales of Occult Detection

    A new volume exploring one of the most popular subgenres of weird fiction which has influenced hundreds of popular television series and films. Featuring rare stories not seen since their first appearance in limited-run periodicals. Appealing to readers of supernatural fiction, and classic detective fiction.

    Occult or psychic detective tales have been chilling readers for almost as long as there have been ghost stories. This beguiling subgenre follows specialists in occult lore – often with years of arcane training – investigating strange supernatural occurrences and pitting their wits against the bizarre and inexplicable.

    With tales featuring the most prominent psychic detectives such as William Hope Hodgson’s Carnacki, the Ghost Finder and Algernon Blackwood’s Dr. Silence, this new collection also includes rare and never-before-reprinted cases investigated by the likes of Flaxman Low, Cosmo Thor, Aylmer Vance and Mesmer Milann.
