The Wanderer in Unknown Realms
Soter, a Great War veteran with no past he wants to remember, takes the occasional assignment from the London barrister Quayle. His new task is to find Lionel Maulding, a wealthy bachelor with only one distinctive attribute: a passionate, almost obsessive love of books.
Visiting Maulding's country home, Soter finds rooms and rooms of books, but strange and frightening things as well. Wherever Maulding has gone, Soter realizes, it had to do with the hunt for one specific book, a book with powers Soter cannot even imagine. Where Soter's quest converges with Maulding's, entire worlds may be revealed and changed.
The Wanderer in Unknown Realms is a story in the tradition of M.R. James and Dickens, full of horrors and wonders and illustrated beautifully by Emily Hall. The limited hardcover edition sold out quickly, but you may be able to find a copy at ABE.
