Catalogue Note

"I have for years had a big psychic novel in me which shall deal realistically with every phase of the question, pro and con. I waited, I knew it would come. Now it has come, with a full head of steam, and I can hardly hold on to my pen it goes so fast... Malone, as an enquiring newspaper man, and Challenger as an outside sceptic are two of the main characters but every type will be drawn. I don't think it has ever been done by anyone who had the subject thoroughly at his fingers' ends before" (the author, writing to the Strand Magazine on 23 October 1924, quoted by Green & Gibson).
