Midnight House, Seattle. 2003. Edgar Jepson's long and productive career spanned the Yellow Nineties through the Edwardian and Neo-Georgian periods of British letters. Jepson authored articles, reviews, short stories, novels, and even wrote propaganda bits during the Great War. His talents were employed on everything from lost-race novels (The Moon Gods, 1930) to authoring a number of fine mystery novels, and translating the works of Gaston Leroux and Maurice Leblanc. Jepson also served as editor or contributor to a number of the finer literary journals including Vanity Fair, The Saturday Evening Post, The Smart Set, and numerous others. Unavailable since its publication before the First World War, The Garden at # 19 is acknowledged Jepson's masterwork. Considered mandatory reading by Aleister Crowley for its stunning portrayal of modern paganism, The Garden at #19 is a masterpiece of terror and wonder worthy of comparison to the best of Algernon Blackwood and Arthur Machen. This new edition features an introduction by editor John Pelan and striking new cover art by Allen Koszowski. Limited to 450 numbered copies. Fine in fine dj.
