Weird Fiction Quotes

“No moral to this story, you will be saying, and I am afraid it is true.” – Joan Aiken

The Vanishing Prince – G. K. Chesterton

Today I read The Vanishing Prince by G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936), one of eight detective stories in his book The Man Who Knew Too Much (1922 by Harper & Bros., New York, US). This political story concerns a strange Irish ‘prince’, with an excellent twist at the end.

As Far as They Had Got – A “Follow-My-Leader” Story

I just read a very silly story by E. Phillips Oppenheim (1866-1946), William Pett Ridge (1859–1930), Arthur Morrison (1863-1945), Horace Annesley Vachell (1861–1955), Barry Pain (1864-1928), Charles Andrew Garvice (1850-1920) and Richard Marsh (1857-1915). It was originally published in The Strand magazine.
