Dark Nights

“Dark Nights” is a collection of short stories by Thomas Burke, originally appearing in various English and American periodicals. Thomas Burke (29 November 1886 – 22 September 1945) was a British writer most famous for his “Limehouse Nights”, a 1916 collection of stories based on life in the poor London district of Limehouse. This volume will appeal to all lovers of the short story form, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Burke's masterful work. Contents include: “Roses Round the Door”, “Sontana in Scarlet”, “Proud Mother”, “Sweet and Low”, “The Purple Star”, “The Bloomsbury Wonder”, “The Message”, “Estella and Dolores”, “Mysterious Disappearance”, “Beautiful Doll”, “The Black Stick”, “The Yellow Box”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
