About this title


In the first decade of the twentieth century, Julian Hawthorne -- son of Nathaniel Hawthorne and not only a talented writer in his own right, but a writer who spent his entire life proving himself, over and over again -- in the first decade of the twentieth century, Julian Hawthorne collected his favorite weird stories from writers around the world and organized them, mostly geographically, for Scribners -- which published them in a series of "mystery" anthologies under the "Lock and Key Library" rubric. More rightly, the anthologies are Weird Fiction -- some of the stories are mystery; some would do well published as modern horror, or SF, or fantasy; all of them exquisite and of interest to modern genre readers. This volume includes stories from Alexander Sergeievitch Pushkin, Vera Jelihovsky, Feodor Mikhailovitch Dostoyevsky, Anton Chekhoff, Vsevolod Vladimirovitch Krestovski, Jorgen Wilhelm Bergsoe, Otto Larssen, Bernhard Severin Ingemann, Steen Steensen Blicher, Ferencz Molnar, Maurus Jokai, Etienne Barsony, and Arthur Elck.

About the Author:

Julian Hawthorne (1846 - 1934) was an American writer and journalist, the son of novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne and Sophia Peabody. He wrote numerous poems, novels, short stories, mystery/detective fiction, essays, travel books, biographies and histories. As a journalist, he reported on the Indian Famine for Cosmopolitan magazine and the Spanish-American War for the New York Journal. Hawthorne wrote two books about his parents, called Nathaniel Hawthorne and His Wife (1884-85) and Hawthorne and His Circle (1903). In the latter, he responded to a remark from his father's friend Herman Melville that the famous author had a "secret". Julian dismissed this, claiming Melville was inclined to think so only because "there were many secrets untold in his own career", causing much speculation. The younger Hawthorne also wrote a critique of his father's novel The Scarlet Letter that was published in The Atlantic Monthly in April 1886.
