The exploits of Kane and his manservant are both comic and thrilling in this Dickensian murder mystery set in Victorian Edinburgh Scotland, 1850. The penalty for murder is death by hanging. Why then employ a young defense lawyer with no trial experience who is surely destined to fail? And why does his client refuse to tell him what happened on the night the crime took place? Edward Kane and the Parlour Maid Murderer follows the young Advocate, Edward Kane, and his manservant, Mr. Horse from the great houses of Edinburgh to the taverns and alleyways of the Old Town in search of answers - and defense. The novel evokes the sights and sounds of Victorian Scotland, introducing a rich cast of characters.

Short subject films have a long history in American cinemas. These could be anywhere from 2 to 40 minutes long and were used as a "filler" in a picture show that would include a cartoon, a newsreel, possibly a serial and a short before launching into the feature film. Shorts could tackle any topic of interest: an unusual travelogue, a comedy, musical revues, sports, nature or popular vaudeville acts. With the advent of sound-on-film in the mid-to-late 1920s, makers of earlier silent short subjects began experimenting with the short films, using them as a testing ground for the use of sound in feature movies. After the Second World War, and the rising popularity of television, short subject films became far too expensive to produce and they had mostly disappeared from the screens by the late 1950s. This encyclopedia offers comprehensive listings of American short subject films from the 1920s through the 1950s.
