"Bacon, a successful author in the first quarter of the twentieth century of fiction that was both 'popular' and 'literary', has tended to fall between these two stools in the estimate of posterity.

She also had a recurrent interest in the supernatural, as documented by Dorothy Scarborough in her important early study, The Supernatural in Modern English Fiction. The main titles of relevance here are THE STRANGE CASES OF DR. STANCHON (1913), IN THE BORDER COUNTRY (1909) and the present title." - Robert Eldridge. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 26.
