Ideally spooky Halloween reading... A chilling ghost story by the author of The Woman in Black. One murky November evening after a satisfying meal in their Fleet Street lodgings, a conversation between four medical students takes a curious turn and Hugh is initiated into a dark secret. In the cellar of their narrow lodgings in Printer's Devil Court and a little used mortuary in a subterranean annex of the hospital, they have begun to interfere with death itself, in shadowy experiments beyond the realms of medical ethics. They call on Hugh to witness an event both extraordinary and terrifying. Years later, Hugh has occasion to return to his student digs and the familiar surroundings resurrect peculiar and unpleasant memories of these unnatural events, the true horror of which only slowly becomes apparent.

Set in New York's notoriously corrupt Tammany Hall era following the Civil War, The Printer's Devil follows Ambrose Kelly, a type-setter for The Tribune. Ambrose has come far in life since his impoverished youth, when he supported his mother and siblings as a bare knuckles fighter. In 1870, Ambrose's dreams are shattered when his wife Maeve and son Edward are run down by a beer wagon. Suspecting murder, Ambrose is intent on tracking down the killers. He arranges for his disabled niece Addie to move in and care for his three year old daughter Nola. Ambrose believes his wife and son were killed because of his side trade in acquiring old books for wealthy patrons. But there may be a different cause - strong-arm work he did for Tammany Hall as a young man. Boss Tweed faces investigation and Ambrose knows that Tammany wouldn't hesitate to silence potential witnesses. Ambrose receives unexpected help from Maisie Rourke, his little sisters' childhood friend. The 19th century equivalent of a call girl, Maisie knows everyone from Samuel Clemens to Jay Gould to George Vandermeer, the shipping magnate who originally commissioned the search for St. Mathew's gospel. After three attempts on Ambrose's life, his former boss Horace Greeley sends him to the Ottoman Empire as a correspondent, enabling Ambrose to track Vandermeer. After discovering Maisie's skill at art, Greeley hires her as Ambrose's illustrator. Together, they follow Vandermeer from Constantinople to a Georgian monastery to the Caspian to Cairo and Luxor and Abyssinia in a deadly race to find the gospel first. Meanwhile, Nola is kidnapped and Addie, though deaf and mute, must search New York alone. While Ambrose wards off his enemies and protects his family, he also must settle his confused feelings between grief for Maeve and Edward, a budding romance with Maisie, and attraction to his niece (by marriage) Addie, who reminds him so much of Maeve.

"In this fascinating study, we see a great 19th-century writer grappling with such 21st-century concerns as the challenge of authenticity in a world of ubiquitous duplication, the meaning authorship in an age of celebrity, the role of words and texts in a world ceaselessly bombarded by visual images, and the struggle to simultaneously exploit and contain the power of new technologies. Michelson sets Twain's often playful interrogation in fiction of new cultural forms such as the interview or the "chromo" against the backdrop of changes in publishing and print media that brought these forms into existence. Printer's Devil will interest anyone who cares about Mark Twain or the history of print culture in America."—Shelley Fisher Fishkin, author of Lighting Out for the Territory: Reflections on Mark Twain and American Culture " A major contribution to Mark Twain studies and, more broadly, to an understanding of American culture."—Gregg Camfield, author of The Oxford Companion to Mark Twain

From the foggy streets of Victorian London to the eerie perfection of 1950s suburbia, the everyday is invaded by the otherworldly in this unforgettable collection of new ghost stories from the bestselling author of The Woman in Black. In the title story, on a murky evening in a club off St James, a paranormal detective recounts his most memorable case, one whose horrifying denouement took place in that very building. A lonely boy makes a friend in 'Boy Number 21', but years later is forced to question the very nature of that friendship. 'Alice Baker' tells the story of a mysterious new office worker who is accompanied by a lingering smell of decay. And in 'The Front Room', a devoutly Christian mother tries to protect her children from the evil influence of their grandmother, both when she is alive and afterwards. This edition also includes the chilling 'Printer's Devil Court' in which three medical students make an unholy pact whose consequences will pursue one of them to the grave - and perhaps beyond. This is Susan Hill at her best, telling characteristically creepy and surprising tales of thwarted ambition, terrifying revenge and supernatural stirrings that will leave you wide-awake long into the night.
