(From the publisher):
The Black Cabinet contains secrets.
Did Lizzie Borden really hack her mother and father to death with an axe? What happened on board the Mary Celeste? Do the bloody Benders still survive in some form? How could thirty-eight people watch a young woman be brutally murdered in New York, and do nothing?
The Black Cabinet contains intriguing, disturbing, horrifying secrets.
It houses a unique collection. A gathering of stories that explore real crimes, by writers such as Angela Carter, Aldous Huxley, Anthony Boucher, Miriam Allen de Ford, and Harlan Ellison. Stories that use fact as the basis for fiction, to explore, explain, ponder, terrify...
