Editorial Reviews


The Kew Growths and Other Stories is, as those familiar with William Meikle's work would expect, a worthy addition to the Professor Challenger canon. - British Fantasy Society

Once again Mr. Meikle proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is one the preeminent storytellers/authors writing today. - Literary Mayhem

The result is a collection of eleven tales that range from action-adventure to horror, each accompanied by an appropriate, often stirring illustration by M. Wayne Miller, whose black-and-white renderings make shadows come alive. ...Professor Challenger: The Kew Growths and Other Stories is a credit to both the originator and the modern storyteller. - Hellnotes to read and you can't ask for much more than that. - Don D'Ammassa

From the Author

Professor Challenger has mostly played second fiddle to Holmes in the Conan Doyle canon, but the character has always interested me; the flawed scientist with a big heart and a bigger ego. Considering he appeared in so few tales from the Doyle pen, it is a testament to the depth of the character that he has survived at all.

From the Lost World, to the poison in the mist, and the day the Earth screamed, he captured my imagination when I was twelve, and I've loved him ever since. That, plus the fact that Doyle reports that Challenger was born in Largs, making him a Scotsman from a town just 6 miles from where I was brought up, means that when Dark Regions Press offered me the chance to play in his world, I jumped at it.
