Book 2, Nocturnes - Nocturnes Volume 2

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

From the bestselling author of the Charlie Parker mysteries—"the finest crime series currently in existence" (The Independent)—comes a new anthology of chilling short fiction.

A decade after Nocturnes first terrified and delighted readers, John Connolly, bestselling author of thirteen acclaimed thrillers featuring private investigator Charlie Parker, gives us a second volume of tales of the supernatural. From stories of the monstrous for dark winter nights to fables of fantastic libraries and haunted books, from a tender account of love after death to a frank, personal, and revealing account of the author's affection for myths of ghosts and demons, this is a collection that will surprise, delight—and terrify.

Night Music: Nocturnes 2 also contains two novellas: the multi-award-winning The Caxton Private Lending Library & Book Depository and The Fractured Atlas.

Night Music: Nocturnes 2 is a masterly collection to be read with the lights on—menace has never been so seductive.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 31, 2015 – Fans of bestseller Connolly's Charlie Parker mysteries (A Song of Shadows, etc.) will welcome his second story collection, which showcases his talent for crafting paranormal tales with healthy injections of humor. The standout is "The Caxton Private Lending Library & Book Depository," a novella with the ingenious premise that, after authors die, those of their characters that have become part of the public consciousness come to life and reside in an obscure library hidden in the British countryside. This means, for example, that only some of Chaucer's pilgrims are animated, because "nobody remembers all of them." This unique institution also appears in "Holmes on the Range," in which Conan Doyle's decision to kill off Sherlock Holmes has some unexpected consequences. Connolly's range is impressive, from a two-page ghost story, "A Dream of Winter," to an old-fashioned bogeyman tale, "Razorshins," set in Maine during Prohibition. An amusing, digressive essay, about the author's interest in the ghostly, concludes the volume.
