Penn, Mary E.: Something Wicked (collected mysteries). v1. 19 Oct 2018

Sixteen stories of crime and mystery and romance in the best Victorian tradition, featuring sinister villains, stalwart heroes, and comely heroines; with a goodly portion of loving endings for happy couples. These stories from The Argosy magazine have never before been collected.

* * * *
This writer of supernatural and crime stories was a regular contributor to the British periodical The Argosy beginning in the mid-1870s. After Penn’s last attributed story appeared in 1897, the author vanished from the literary world.

Nothing is known about Mary Elizabeth Penn. Scholars have been unable to find any details, including birth and death dates, or even gender. Alastair Gunn, in the introduction to The Ghost Stories of Mary E. Penn (2017), advances a theory that this may have been one of the many pen-names of noted Victorian author Ellen (Mrs. Henry) Wood (1814-1887). [See:

-------------------
The contents of this book were first published 1879 ~ 1897 in The Argosy.

This is my own compilation. Texts were obtained from magazine archives at the Internet Archive and HathiTrust. OCR errors were corrected; punctuation, diacritics, and italics formatted. Story titles are cross-linked to table of contents. Embedded font used for titling.

-------------------
Cozy Victorian mysteries, to read snuggled up in a comforter with a hot beverage for company.
