The Unknown Collaborator and Other Legendary Tales

by Victor Joly
Release date: October 2016
Original title: Histoires ténébreuses
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, short stories

The original novel was published in 1857. Translated by Brian Stableford.

Histoires ténébreuses by Victor Joly, here translated as The Unknown Collaborator and Other Legendary Tales, was first published in Brussels by Auguste Schnee & Co. in 1857. It collects three novellas and a short story, all affiliated, albeit a trifle belatedly and more than a little ironically, to the Romantic Movements of France and Germany, fusing the two influences in a fashion that only a Belgian writer was likely to attempt, and thus producing a hybrid whose distinctiveness is particularly obvious in the first two stories in the collection, each of which makes a significant contribution to the rich tradition of Romantic satanic fantasies.
