7 best short stories by Thomas Burke

Thomas Burke's writing blends several styles to create a dramatic portrait of London. Limehouse Nights and its various sequels classified Burke as a “purveyor of melodramatic stories of lust and murder among London's lower classes”. Both his essays and fiction, focusing particularly on Limehouse Nights, are characterised, seemingly paradoxically, with harsh realities and more romanticised, poetic outlooks.
