Strange Stories (1884)

Strange Stories (1884) by Grant Allen

"I may perhaps also venture to plead in self-defence that though these stories do not profess to be anything more than mere short sensational tales, I have yet endeavoured to give to most of them some slight tinge of scientific or psychological import and meaning."

Includes the stories "Pausodyne", "an early tale about Suspended Animation", "A Child of the Phalanstery", "about a future society's Eugenic practices", as well as "New Year's Eve Among the Mummies", "The Mysterious Occurrence in Piccadilly", "Our Scientific Observations on a Ghost" and others.

Produced by Annie R. McGuire. This book was produced from scanned images of public domain material from the Google Print archive.
