Carnacki, occult detective

This is a series of six stories by William Hope Hodgson. The stories relate the tales of Detective Carnacki who investigates mysteries of the occult. This book is expertly narrated by Ian Gordon and I loved each of them. If you are a fan of Kolchak: The NIght Stalker, then I'm pretty sure you will enjoy these. None of the stories are a long listen so you can devour this all at once or take it in bite-size chunks.

The archetypal occult detective

80 years before Fox Mulder (X-Files) and 60 years before Carl Kolchak (Kolchak: The Night Stalker) and before Seabury Quinn's Jules de Grandin or Manly Wade Wellman's John Thunstone there was William Hope Hodgson's Thomas Carnacki. Arguably one of the first occult detectives, Carnacki used a more scientific approach to the investigation of “hauntings.”

Contents include:

1 – The Gateway of the Monster
2 – The House Among the Laurels
3 – The Whistling Room
4 – The Horse of the Invisible
5 – The Searcher of the End House
6 – The Thing Invisible

Superbly read by Ian Gordon, these tales are just as entertaining now as when they first entered print in 1910. So accept Mr. Carnacki's invitation to come to his home and listen to Ian as he reads the adventures of this archetypal detective. Out you go and get your copy!
