Alexander C. MacNeill came to London expecting a place in his uncle’s vast publishing business, only to find he wrote penny dreadful’s to scratch a living. Alexander takes over as editor of the venture, and their first story Varney the Vampyre is received with some success.
But not is as it seems… Alexander has doubts about the source of the material. As the weeks pass and subsequent Varney chapters are released, the real story behind the grizzly tale are revealed…
Alexander always thought Varney was confined to the pages of a Penny Dreadful, perhaps was wrong…
The Penny Dreadful Adventures is the first in a series, bringing the writing of these macabre shorts to a new generation of readers. Some authors sold a few thousand copies, some sold many millions, yet their names do not survive.
