Well-crafted and very much in the spirit of the original tales. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and hope that more of the same might one day be forthcoming from these writers - individually or severally.

A fine collection of the cases Carnacki never dared tell the audiences of 1912! Except perhaps for the first tale, which doubles as an introduction. And .. let's just say, it had to be done :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Carnacki returns! 8 April 2017
By RIJU GANGULY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Carnacki, the ghost-finder, has been receiving considerable attention off late.
While Occult Detectives and Paranormal Investigators, from basic Holmesian types to the more cowboy-like Dresdenesque ones, keep treading the grounds, reducing it to a slush, the century old gent treating his friends with food, sherry, and his ‘tales’, has truly caught our imagination.
It’s in that tradition that this collection of Carnacki’s supposedly ‘lost’ cases has come forth, containing stories penned by some of the finest practitioners of such craft. Let me share my feelings about those stories, herein.

1. “The Meeting” by John Linwood Grant: A sharp, smart piece that sets up the collection nicely, but ends too soon.
2. “The Darkness” by A.F. Kidd: One of the finest pastiches dealing with Carnacki, this story is also a terrific example of Jamesian horror, a vein richly mined by the author in her campanological tales as well.
3. “The Silent Garden” by Jason C. Eckhardt: A taut, suspenseful story that I enjoyed immensely.
4. “The Shadow Suns” by John Howard: Rather mellowed, gentle, and soft, this story belonged to a different bracket altogether, but was enjoyable nevertheless.
5. “The Steeple Monster Case” by Charles R. Rutledge: A brilliant, action-packed, terrifying story, that literally left me gasping for more!
6. “The Moving Fur Case” by Paul R. McNamee: Welsh backdrop, a primitive hunting theme, and typical claustrophobic confines of a lodge combined with animalistic horror reminiscent of ‘The Hog’ in this story, to make it sharply effective.
7. “The Delphic Bee” by Josh Reynolds: Although not an adventure of the Royal Occultist per se, Carnacki had an adventure here that smelt very-very strongly of death & honey. Enjoyed it.
8. “A Hideous Communion” by James Gracey: Pain, sorrow, loneliness, horror, and an abomination from beyond combine to make this story truly frightening.
9. “The Dark Trade” by John Linwood Grant: Atmospheric, grim, dark, and moving. This story shows how human misery & pain constitute the backbone of our fear, rather than relying on ab-natural manifestations.
10. “The Grunting Man” by William Meikle: With the right combination of dry humour and dark horror, this story stood out as an exception even amongst several outstanding tales in this book.
11. “The Dark Light” by Robert M. Price: A bad joke played on hapless readers. I would steer away from works of this author.
12. “The Yellow Finger Experiments” by James Bojaciuk: Too experimental for my taste. Didn’t like the story, the characters, the structure, or Carnacki as drawn by the author in this case.
13. “The Grey Dog” by John Linwood Grant: After two brilliant forays into the world of Carnacki so far, why the author decided to close everything on such a damp & maudlin note, would remain quite a mystery for me.

Therefore, even after taking the last three squeaks into count, this book produces quite a sweet & eerie tune overall, that all admirers of Carnacki might appreciate.
Recommended, definitely.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable return to Carnacki 18 Oct. 2016
By Marcus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An enjoyable return to the world and characters of Carnacki, originally written by William Hope Hodgson. The tone and style of these stories are similar to the originals, with the emphasis on mystery and detective work rather than on horror, and using an atmospheric style of the late 1800's to early 1900's. Despite being written by a number of different authors, the stories remain reasonably consistent in style, and none of the authors stood out as being out of place (as occasionally happens in anthologies like this).

The main character is basically a 'supernatural detective,' and deals with cases involving the supernatural instead of more mundane cases. If you as a reader are intolerant of somewhat antiquated prose, or are looking for action and violence, this may not be for you. If you enjoyed Sherlock Holmes and/or Victorian-era occult stories that depend more on atmosphere and ambiance than on graphic violence, I would definitely recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Sherlock, Ripper, and Penny Dreadful fans looking for something else to sink their canines into! 5 Sept. 2016
By Aaron Vlek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Here is a wonderful collection of tales continuing the colorfully mysterious cases of the great occult detective Thomas Carnacki, seasoned sleuth of all things arcane first brought to the public by William Hope Hodgson in the early days of the 1900s. This is a melange of shared world stories by various contemporary authors who are up to the task and who whisk us away into another world and a more charming time. The stories herein would be greatly enjoyed by fans of Sherlock Holmes as well as the lovers of Victorian ghost and occult stories. This reader looks forward to more!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great new stories for fans of Carnacki 20 April 2017
By Allan R Beiderman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great new Carnacki stories by recognized "weird fiction" and occult detective authors. Be on lookout to references to other Hodgson stories such as "The Night land".
3.0 out of 5 stars but not bad stories on the whole 4 Dec. 2016

Really didn't have the feel of Hodgson...but not bad stories on the whole.
