Inspired by Oscar Wilde's classic story of hedonism and corruption, The Confessions of Dorian Gray imagines a world where Dorian Gray was real, and his friendship with Oscar Wilde once spawned the notorious novel. 1. The Enigma of Dorian Gray by Roy Gill Salford, 1968. Dorian returns to one of his former universities, having been summoned by his old friend, Adam Notting.

After rescuing a young woman from the middle of a desolate forest, Dorian realises they're not alone. There's something else in the woodland with them - something follow them - and it won't give up until it's finally tracked them down. 3. Human Remains by James Goss London, 1998. To alleviate a typical bout of boredom, Dorian decides to have his appendix removed - again - and checks himself into "a very nice private hospital". However, upon his recovery, he sees a hideous creature stalking the wards. Is it just a side-effect of the drugs, his mind playing tricks... or is there something more sinister going on at Melrose Hospital? 4. His Dying Breath by George Mann London, 1929. The Bright Young Things of the city are living life to the full, when a series of unusual murders strikes the capital.

Banshee by Xanna Eve Chown County Meath, 1900. After one Dorian's friends acquires a house on the Emerald Isle, Dorian travels with him to Ireland to inspect the estate.
