Although it may lack the labyrinthine sewers of Paris, the mean streets of Los Angeles, or the low and vile alleys of London, Toronto is not without its places of danger, excitement and romance. In Bloody York, thirteen Canadian writers from the late nineteenth century to today find intrigue, mystery and terror in the familiar streets and places of Toronto, in stories set from the 1860s to beyond the present.
