Author Finalsmall2Henry Anderson is the author of “The Mouth” and occasional blogger.

Henry’s latest posts are short stories. In “The Spa” – a terminally-ill journalist searches for meaning in a haunted village. In “The Escape from Stygia” explorers attempt to drill their way to the centre of the earth. In “Leviathan” a self-styled “gentleman adventurer” confronts an ancient mystery.

Before that he argued that Edgar Allan Poe’s first literary detective was not the famous Auguste Dupin  but a bewildered man unable to solve a massive mystery.
