Influenced by his early experiences in London's Limehouse district (a haunt for sailors, dock-workers, and Chinese immigrants), Thomas Burke wrote "Limehouse Nights", a collection of tales about his experiences in the district. It was published in 1916 and established his writing career. In the years that followed, Burke would write many stories about the dark underside of life, featuring the uncanny and the grotesque. Collected here are twenty-one of Burke's tales of the weird and the supernatural. Includes an extensive introduction by editor Jessica Amanda Salmonson and a reminiscence by publisher Grant Richards.
