The Devil's Apprentice by John Wallen
John Wallen writes of his new collection of stories: "This is a collection for the connoisseur of literary horror, written with more than a passing nod to several masters of the classic Victorian tale of terror and the supernatural. For those who delight in tracking down arcane references, allusions may be found in these stories to M.R. James, Arthur Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker, Algernon Blackwood, Wilkie Collins, and Charles Dickens." He concludes: "What more to say? Only that I could wish the reader a tempest-torn sky and a flickering candle as an ideal backdrop by which to read these stories!" Readers who are already familiar with the author's previous work under his pen name of Jon Aristides, will not be disappointed by the memorable collection of genre-inspired stories.
