“Anything can happen in the dark…” After Midnight is a collection of gothic short stories based on the folk legends and cautionary tales of the unknown that were collected in Britain by missing author Sidney Wainwright. All the tales are born from that inane human fascination with mystery and the macabre. From sinister unsolved murders or the exploits of slavers to the realms of the supernatural, and the mysteries of the human mind, these tales heighten the senses and take you back to those childhood fears that we are all drawn to once again when the lights go out. The tales are presented from a rediscovered manuscript by Sidney Wainwright’s friend Archibald Jerome along with his recollections of the illusive man himself, who is perhaps a deeper mystery than any of the stories. Sidney Wainwright’s whereabouts and fate remain a mystery to this day. So sit by the hearth on a dark and stormy night. Read yourself a story or two by firelight. Try to forget the sense that someone is there with you, watching, always just out of sight. I warn you, once the clock chimes midnight, there is no knowing how this tale will end.
