Read full description of the books:
Edgar Jepson's long and productive career spanned the Yellow Nineties through the Edwardian and Neo-Georgian periods of British letters. Jepson authored articles, reviews, short stories, novels, and even wrote propaganda bits during the Great War. His talents were employed on everything from lost-race novels (The Moon Gods, 1930) to authoring a number of fine mystery novels, and translating the works of Gaston Leroux and Maurice Leblanc. Jepson also served as editor or contributor to a number of the finer literary journals including Vanity Fair, The Saturday Evening Post, The Smart Set, and numerous others. Unavailable since its publication before the First World War, The Garden at # 19 is acknowledged Jepson's masterwork. Considered mandatory reading by Aleister Crowley for its stunning portrayal of modern paganism, The Garden at #19 is a masterpiece of terror and wonder worthy of comparison to the best of Algernon Blackwood and Arthur Machen. This new edition features an introduction by editor John Pelan and striking new cover art by Allen Koszowski. Limited to 450 numbered copies.

Read information about the authorEdgar Alfred Jepson (1863 - 1938) was an English writer, principally of mainstream adventure and detective fiction, but also of some supernatural and fantasy stories that are better remembered. He used a pseudonym R. Edison Page for some of his many short stories, collaborating at times with John Gawsworth, Hugh Clevely and possibly Arthur Machen, long-term friends.
He was editor for a short period of Vanity Fair magazine, where he employed Richard Middleton, and did much to preserve the latter's memory. He was also a translator, notably of the Arsène Lupin stories of Maurice Leblanc.
He was a member of the Square Club (from 1908) of established Edwardian authors, and also one of the more senior of the New Bohemians drinking club.
As a literary dynasty: his son Selwyn Jepson was known as a crime writer; his daughter Margaret (married name Birkinshaw) published novels as Margaret Jepson (including Via Panama) and as Pearl Bellairs; and Margaret's daughter Franklin is the writer Fay Weldon. The Jepson domestic arrangements are commented on second-hand in Weldon's autobiographical writing.
Jepson was friends with the English mystery writer Hugh Clevely and even shared the same pseudonym "Tod Claymore." They co-wrote the novel "The Man With the Amber Eyes."
