A strange figure foretells tragedy on the railway tracks. A plague threatens to encroach upon an isolated castle. The daughter of an eccentric scientist falls victim to a poisonous curse.

Yet for all its certainty and finality, death remains an infinitely mysterious subject to us all. The stories in this anthology depict the haunting moment when characters come face-to-face with their own mortality.

Spanning two centuries, Mortal Echoes features some of the finest writers in the English language, including Edgar Allan Poe, Graham Greene, May Sinclair, and H. G. Wells. Intriguing, unsettling and often darkly humorous, this collection explores humanity's transient existence, and what it means to be alive.
