John Howard and Mark Valentine
In an East Prussian manor house, a Bohemian library, a Bulgarian railway station; in a Venetian citadel, a Breton harbour, a city in the Caucasus, characters encounter not only the vicissitudes of history but also the subtle influences of the uncanny.
As they face war, revolution and upheaval, or the quieter encroachments of decay, these haunted figures must find their way both in a changed world and in mysterious overlapping otherworlds.
Inner Europe collects thirteen stories, eleven of them newly written for this book. This shared volume follows the two authors’ well-received Secret Europe and takes the reader once again on strange journeys to forgotten or little-known places and peculiar historical byways.
'...Inner Europe, a companion to Secret Europe. Both these handsome volumes ... are suffused with that air of mystery, transgression and foreboding one associates with continental literature and film during the 1920s and ’30s.' Michael Dirda, The Washington Post
'Inner Europe is a remarkable achievement, straddling genres to offer the reader strange, moving, and always entertaining tales.' David Longhorn at the Supernatural Tales blog
