Until today I had never heard of M P Shiel. In his day a best-selling author, now forgotten. Has anyone out there come across his works ?

Nope. Very interesting, Scot. I'd never heard of him; but there is a woman I know comes from Montserrat, so I'll ask her about it next time I see her in the supermarket! Or maybe it's her husband: either way...

Yes interesting - i’ll have a look at one of his books.

As a person - a victorian child abuser - he is not exactly unique in the caribbean, its just that sentances are longer now [unless they are well connected of course.]

Interesting modern historical novel writer - look up sugar money by jane harris, i liked it.
