The Man with a Shadow

by George Manville Fenn

A young surgeon develops a scientific theory on the subject of "death by shock." This he considers to be "a blot upon the science of the present day" which ought not to be tolerated; and he does his best to prove that there is no necessity at all for a man to die in that particular way. In the same parish with the doctor is a country curate, of the jocular muscular Christian type, whose two sisters live with him--Mary the good and gentle, and Leo the flighty and violent. In addition to these there are the squire and his brother, who give the curate and his sisters a good deal of trouble.

Author of the Day

J.B. Markes
J.B. Markes has had a fascination with fantasy stories ever since his aunt bought him a copy of the Legend of Zelda, an 8-bit RPG game. He now writes in the genre and likes to add unexpected twists and a touch of humor. His latest novel, Necrospect is no exception, featuring a necromancer as the good guy, a world where magic has serious side effects and an interesting murder mystery. As our author of the day, Markes gives us a behind the scenes look at Necrospect, talks about his top-secret skills and reveals what he is working on now.
