The Parasite by Arthur Conan Doyle and The Watter’s Mou by Bram Stoker
The publishing house of Archibald Constable & Co. launched a series of novellas by reputable authors under the name of The Acme Library in 1984. The publication of the novellas was ill fated and production run was short making these editions scarce. Both novellas offer a different side to the author’s usual writings. The Parasite relays a paranormal tale. The Watter’s Mou portrays a romantic tale set along the Scottish coast
