Storyteller Anton Von Stefan published 11 of his 36 Gothic tales in The Curse of the Red Crystal (Granville Island 2017). For over a decade, Von Stefan has been telling his gothic horror tales in places like Mayne Island's Springwater Lodge. The published tales span from Victorian times to the present day; Egyptian tombs to London's foggy alleys; creaking ships to stately mansions; and good intentions to absolute damnation. Von Stefan was born in Vienna, Austria and grew up in Vancouver and Richmond.
