Is the Antlered Man an avatar of a pagan god, perhaps Herne the Huntsman? Or does the Antlered Man conceal an all-too-human identity bent on mayhem? This is the challenge facing Chief Detective-Inspector William Beeke and Detective-Sergeant Eustace Cavendish when a corpse is discovered on a lonely country road outside the village of Long Marsley. Rumor is quick to spread that the death was caused by the ghost of Long Marsley: the Antlered Man. Inspector Beeke -- otherwise affectionately known as "the Grouser" on account of his far-too-long-held conviction that he is a terminally-ill man -- quickly scents more than ectoplasm in the air and begins to unravel the mystery. What's known for certain is that whenever the Antlered Man appears, death is sure to follow! The Strange Case of the Antlered Man is perhaps the most sought-after work by the prolific British author Edwy Searles Brooks. The first edition of this terrific novel is now a scarce and desirable item; as with many of the British thrillers of the time, hundreds of copies were destroyed during the blitz. Dancing Tuatara Press is pleased to be able to rectify this situation by offering this handsome new edition of what is sure to become a classic in the genre.
