(Snuggly Books, 2019)
Hardback 582pp., Limited to 120 copies. $50

Presented here for the first time in a single volume, is the entire corpus of short fiction by Edward Heron-Allen, one of England’s most intriguing, and unnecessarily obscure, authors. From “The Suicide of Sylvester Gray,” the novella which was an inspiration for The Portrait of Dorian Gray, by Oscar Wilde, a friend of Heron-Allen’s, to “The Cheetah Girl,” an outrageous masterpiece of biological science fiction, the present collection is a tour de force of the elegant, the bizarre, and the unmentionable.

With a total of thirty tales, the five volumes contained herein, many of which have previously only been obtainable for exorbitant prices, are now finally available in a proper format for connoisseurs, and the unafraid.

The Society


The Heron-Allen Society was formed at a meeting at the West Sussex Record Office in Chichester on 5th June 2000.

The objectives of the Society are to study and record all aspects of the life and interests of Edward Heron-Allen, 1861-1943 and to promote his work.

It is with special thanks to his grandson, Ivor Jones, that we are able to bring you the information contained on these pages. All material by Edward Heron-Allen, either under his own name or the various pseudonyms that he employed, is copyright the Estate of Heron-Allen.

We are sorry to announce the death of Ivor Jones on 7 March. Ivor was a grandson of Edward Heron-Allen, a co-founder of the Heron-Allen Society, and a driving force in preserving his grandfather's memory. There will be a tribute to him in our Autumn Newsletter. Our condolences go to Venetia and all his family with our thanks for all their support of the Society.
