About Marion Pitman
Born in 1955, a Londoner by heritage and inclination, I have been writing as long as I can remember, and have had short fiction and poetry published since 1979. Most of my fiction can loosely be categorised as fantasy / horror / weird. A steady diet of ghost stories and detective stories from an early age may account for a lot. I also sell secondhand books, and briefly edited the magazine Collector's Mart, which someone noted as the best proofread magazine in the field. My first collection, Music in the Bone, is published by Alchemy Press

As Carnacki the Ghost Finder, the famous literary occult detective, once said:
“I view all reported ‘hauntings’ as unproven until I have examined into them, and I am bound to admit that ninety-nine cases out of a hundred turn out to be sheer bosh and fancy.”
In these pages, a range of contemporary authors explore 'what happens next' when the Great Detective confronts mysteries which question reason. A summons from Irene Adler’s daughter; a chance encounter with one of Houdini’s fraud investigators; the enigma of Dr John Silence. Mysterious events at Mary Morstan’s old school, and a threat to Queen Victoria. The return of the German agent Von Bork, somewhat changed, and a desperate hunt for a killer through the alleys of London with none other than Professor Van Helsing.
Join us in the second volume of this two-volume anthology as Holmes finds himself working with psychic investigators old and new in pursuit of answers, and must confront his own scepticism. Tales in the traditional style – but with a twist. Can Holmes’s logic work alongside the occult detectives’ willingness to embrace another set of rules entirely? Paranormal – or poppycock?
