The brilliant and sinister Martin writes a novel from the perspective of a murderer-and if you read it you just might turn into one. Set in both the art world and the demimonde of New York City, Tod Robbins's 1912 horror novella Mysterious Martin explores what it means to go to extreme lengths for the sake of art . . . and what happens when the line between art and reality disappears. Included in this edition are the original novella and the revised and expanded version Robbins published in 1920 as "For Art's Sake."
