✨ CARNACKI: STARRY WISDOM AND OTHER STORIES has won the Best Occult Detective / Horror Collection award in the 2023 Occult Detective awards! ✨ 

New tales of William Hope Hodgson’s CARNACKI.

CARNACKI operates in shadowy occult realms, on the fringes of science, in places out of sight and out of mind of normal everyday people. But sometimes the darkness touches the lives of others in ways they cannot understand, and they find they need help – the kind of help that only Carnacki can provide.

In STRANGERS ON THE SHORE and STARRY WISDOM Carnacki is called on to help a young Winston Churchill investigate an ancient artifact in a Kent sea cave, and in facing up to a sect of London gentlemen seeking illicit pleasures and a path to power.

In THE KEYS TO THE DOOR, Carnacki helps a Scotland Yard inspector in ridding him of a decades old nemesis from Whitechapel

In other tales you will meet a strange body in Carnacki’s library, a thing in a lake that may be some kind of god, a very strange occurrence in a church belfry, an old Edinburgh townhouse that contains a vile secret, a place in Glasgow where strange sigils and totems take on a special power, weird haunts on an English canal and much more.

In these new stories Carnacki helps old friends and new acquaintances in the never ending battle to keep the Great Beyond at bay.

      “Meikle emulates the voice, tone and structure of those original Carnacki stories almost perfectly, all the while taking them in directions that the original tales never went.”
      — Innsmouth Free Press

      “…worthy of sharing a bookshelf with its source material.”
      — Black Static Magazine

      “Cracking good yarns written by an author who is at the top of his game… one of our generations finest writers. He is unapologetically firmly entrenched in pulp fiction traditions, and by the gods, his words never cease to thrill me to no end.”
      — The Occult Detective

      “All in all, bally good fun, one to enjoy with sitting round the fireplace with the chaps, a glass good aged port in hand.”
      — Ginger Nuts of Horror

      “William Meikle does a stand up job here of capturing the tone of the original stories. He falls naturally into the more formal language of the period, without making it any less easy to read.”
      — British Fantasy Society
