The Stone Dragon: And Other Tragic Romances by Murray Gilchrist
Methuen and Co. (1894)
‘The book is sinister, enveloped in gloom – yes, and Decadent . . . but it is strong, it has authenticity . . . there is nothing quite like The Stone Dragon in modern English fiction: but in it you may distinctly trace the influence of Poe, and perhaps also Villiers de l’Isle Adam and Charles Baudelaire.’ Thus one anonymous contemporary critic summed up R. Murray Gilchrist’s first (and only) collection of Gothic and weird tales, The Stone Dragon and Other Tragic Romances (1894). Extremely scarce in its original edition, Gilchrist’s book has gone on to be recognized as a classic of Decadent and horror fiction. Told in a hauntingly beautiful prose, Gilchrist’s tales of murder, madness, and doomed love exercise a fascination that is wholly unique.
