About the authors

Perceval Landon

Perceval Landon (1869-1927) was a barriste as well as a versatile writer and journalist. He wrote only a couple of supernatural short stories, collected in Raw Edges (1908), but one of these "Thurnley Abbey" is very highly thought-of, and often anthologized. He was special correspondent for the Times in the Boer Waar; he afterwards served as special correspondent on many assignments, including the British expedition to Tibet, for the times, the Daily Mail, and the Daily Telegraph.
