Death at the Blue Elephant collects 18 incredible globe-spanning visions by the self-confessed 'inveterate traveller'. Five stories are original to this collection.

"There’s magic here, and illusion, and strange wonders that’ll surprise and delight." — Robert Shearman

"Exotic, cunning — often funny — and now and then edges to cut yourself on." — Tanith Lee

"Gloriously adult, these stories will transport you — but they’ll never drop you home." — Anna Tambour

"Janeen Webb’s assemblage of angels, aliens, devils and assorted revenants bring with them compassion and settings rich and exotic where even the mundanity of our everyday world is imbued with a sparkle rarely glimpsed in the hands of lesser writers." — Peter Crowther

In her introduction to this book, Pamela Sargent describes these stories as evoking a "combination of suspenseful anticipation, nervous apprehension, and total absorption in something far removed from my own experience".
