View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The sinister under-belly of old Dublin revealed. Four kings called George, from 1714 to 1830, with a gothic novella to mark the reign of each. In 1726, a proud Dublin businessman goes to the gallows after his barely failed revival of an underground arboreal horror that would subvert the course of creation. A bored nautical doctor finds more than just a missing baby in the "cladded entrails of dilapidation" of a teetering back-street pile in 1747. In 1773, a poor boys' academy is shocked by the doings of a strange Slovak professor who makes life-size models in wax that stir and shift, of which the loveliest and last lends eerie verification to a spooky dormitory yarn in 1790. On 30th December 1827, a pair of sparring writers engage in a tussle of intellect over the body of a beautiful young woman, who may or may not be alive but has demonstrable power to project thought. In this hidden, if dimly familiar world of old Dublin, filth and finery conjoin in a death-dance of dread.
