The theme of this Megapack is classic mystery and crime fiction from the Victorian era. We have taken the liberty of extending the qualifying publication dates to the end of World War I, since that event marked more of a turning point in world literature than the advent of the Edwardian Age. Certainly the spirit of Victorian crime fiction continued beyond Queen Victoria. This volume contains 25 stories and 2 bonus novels, offering hours of reading pleasure.­THE LENTON CROFT ROBBERIES, by Arthur MorrisonTHE HOUSE OF CLOCKS, by Anna Katharine GreenMISSING: PAGE THIRTEEN, by Anna Katharine GreenA JURY OF HER PEERS, by Susan GlaspellTHE DONNINGTON AFFAIR, by G.­K.

John Kendrick Bangs (1862-­1922) is without doubt one of the most prolific writers of fantastic novels and stories set in Hades. The three works which comprise his "Hades" series, A Houseboat on the Styx (1895), Pursuit of the Houseboat (1897), and the collection now in your hands, The Enchanted Type-­Writer (1899) are acknowledged classics of modern fantasy, precursors to works by Thorne Smith (Topper), Philip Jose Farmer (The Fabulous Riverboat), and many others. Rest assured that The Enchanted Type-­Writer stands alone; you do not have to have read the first two novels to enjoy it fully. At the turn of the 20th century, when copyright laws were, shall we say, less rigidly enforced than they probably should have been, Bangs felt free to "borrow" other writers' characters, including two of the most famous?

The book begins with Charon, ferryman of the Styx startled--­and annoyed--­by the arrival of a house boat on his mystical river. At first afraid that the boat will put him out of business, he later finds out that he is to be appointed the boat's janitor. What follows are eleven stories set on the house boat. There is no central theme; each chapter features various souls from history and mythology, and in the twelfth chapter the house boat disappears, seguing into the sequel, Pursuit of the House-­Boat.

It is a strange fact, for which I do not expect ever satisfactorily to account, and which will receive little credence even among those who know that I am not given to romancing— it is a strange fact, I say, that the substance of the following pages has evolved itself during a period of six months, more or less, between the hours of midnight and four o'clock in the morning, proceeding directly from a type-­writing machine standing in the corner of my library, manipulated by unseen hands. The machine is not of recent make. It is, in fact, a relic of the early seventies, which I discovered one morning when, suffering from a slight attack of the grip, I had remained at home and devoted my time to pottering about in the attic, unearthing old books, bringing to the light long-­forgotten correspondences, my boyhood collections of “stuff, ” and other memory-­inducing things. Whence the machine came originally I do not recall. My impression is that it belonged to a stenographer once in the . . .

Renowned humorist John Kendrick Bangs goes to great pains to describe what it’s like to be haunted, and how exhausting a phantom houseguest can be. “I have seen so many horrid visitants from other worlds that they hardly affect me at all, so far as the mere inspiration of terror is concerned,­” he writes, but what a nuisance they can be! Seven stories in all, ranging from the sublimely absurd to the downright eerie. This ebook faithfully reproduces the text of the 1898 first American edition and includes all 23 of the original plate illustrations, a new foreword by Pinocchio’s Forgotten Land author Scott Mignola, and a Frivolous Reading Group Guide.
