Marsh, Richard: Between the Dark and the Daylight. v1. 06 Jun 2021

An entertaining collection of twelve of Marsh’s cleverest stories.
A thieving ghost, a conflicted juror, a cross-dressing servant, an anti-everything crusader, a clerical plagiarist, a murderous woman scorned, a timid old maid wooed – what do any of these characters have in common?

[…] Certainly the question of identity looms large in these stories: identity lost, stolen, faked, confused, mistaken or brazenly maintained after death. Hypocrites, fraudsters and murderers are unmasked. Courage and genuine goodness are rewarded. And no one is quite exempt from the sting of Marsh’s satire.
(—Amazon review)

==========
Richard Marsh (12 October 1857 – 9 August 1915) was the pseudonym of English author Richard Bernard Heldmann. One of the most popular and prolific authors of the late-Victorian and Edwardian periods, he is best known now for his supernatural thriller novel The Beetle. Marsh produced nearly 80 volumes of fiction and numerous short stories, in genres including horror, crime, romance and humor.

This one is a mixed bag of crime and mystery, romance, and a few touches of the supernatural. Hope you enjoy it!
