DESCRIPTION
The bizarre imagination and stylistic sorcery of Matthew Phipps Shiel have created several sleuths unique in the annals of criminal detection. The author s first published book introduced the mysterious Russian, Prince Zaleski, while his legendary Pale Ape collection presented a second extraordinary figure, Cummings King Monk. The complete exploits of both detectives are collected here for the first time between two covers.

"Among the most bizarre and mind-bending tales I've ever read; Shiel could write like a satanic scripturalist on an amphetamine jag, and some of the stories in this book will leave you positively reeling." - -Richard A. Lupoff in Algol
