Announcing The Dark Angel by Seabury Quin

The Dark Ages by Seabury Quinn


We're pleased to announce that we'll be receiving copies of Seabury Quinn's The Dark Angel, the third volume collecting the Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin.

About the Book:

Today the names of H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, August Derleth, and Clark Ashton Smith, all regular contributors to the pulp magazine Weird Tales during the first half of the twentieth century, are recognizable even to casual readers of the bizarre and fantastic. And yet despite being more popular than them all during the golden era of genre pulp fiction, there is another author whose name and work have fallen into obscurity: Seabury Quinn.

Quinn’s short stories were featured in well over half of Weird Tales’s original publication run. His most famous character, the supernatural French detective Dr. Jules de Grandin, investigated cases involving monsters, devil worshippers, serial killers, and spirits from beyond the grave, often set in the small town of Harrisonville, New Jersey. In de Grandin, there are familiar shades of both Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot, and alongside his assistant, Dr. Samuel Trowbridge, de Grandin’s knack for solving mysteries—and his outbursts of peculiar French-isms (Grand Dieu!)—captivated readers for nearly three decades.

Collected for the first time in trade editions, The Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin presents all ninety-three of Seabury Quinn’s stories starring the supernatural detective Jules de Grandin. Presented in chronological order over five fully cloth-bound hardcover volumes, with artwork from acclaimed artist Donato Giancola, Night Shade Books is proud to present the definitive collection of an iconic pulp hero.

The third volume, The Dark Angel, includes all of the Jules de Grandin stories from “The Lost Lady” (1931) to “The Hand of Glory” (1933), as well as “The Devil’s Bride,” the only novel-length work featuring de Grandin (serialized in Weird Tales over six issues in 1932), an introduction by George Vanderburgh and Robert Weinberg, and a foreword by Darrell Schweitzer.
