These carefully selected works can be fiction, non-fiction, historical documents or even biographies. We will always select for you three great works to instigate your mind, this time the topic is: Occult Detective Fiction. - In a Glass Darkly by J. Sheridan Le Fanu.- Carnacki, the Ghost Finder by William Hope Hodgson.- Flaxman Low, Occult Psychologist, Collected Stories by H. Hesketh-Prichard.In a Glass Darkly is a collection of five short stories by Sheridan Le Fanu, first published in 1872, the year before his death. The title is taken from 1 Corinthians 13:12, a deliberate misquotation of the passage which describes humanity as perceiving the world "through a glass darkly". Carnacki the Ghost-Finder is a collection of occult detective short stories by English writer William Hope Hodgson. Carnacki lives in a bachelor flat in No 472 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea; the stories are told from a first-person perspective by Dodgson, a member of Carnacki's "strictly limited circle of friends", much as Holmes's; adventures were told from Watson's point of view. Flaxman Low is a fictional character created by British authors Hesketh Hesketh-Prichard and his mother Kate O'Brien Ryall Prichard, published under the pseudonyms H. Heron; and E. Heron;. Low is credited with being the first psychic detective of fiction, and appears in a series of short stories. This is one of many books in the series 3 Books To Know.
