The Fate of Fenella

by 24 authors including Arthur Conan Doyle and Bram Stoker

 

The publishers claim with no little satisfaction that in this book they offer the reading public a genuine novelty. The idea of a novel written by twenty-four popular writers is certainly an original one. The ladies and gentlemen who have written The Fate of Fenella have done their work quite independently of each other. There has been collaboration but not consultation. As each one wrote a chapter it was passed on to the next, and so on until it reached the hands of Mr. F. Anstey, whose peculiar and delightful humour made him a fitting choice for bringing the story to a satisfactory close. (From the 1892 edition.)

This new edition includes a few footnotes giving brief biographical details of the authors and some of the sources of the epigrams that they used. Also included is a contemporary review that was published in The Spectator magazine.
