Spending days in the forgotten areas of libraries isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you think of detective work, but that's where Andrew Gulli, managing editor of The Strand Magazine, spends his time. Gulli is passionate about finding unpublished works of famous authors.

He's been on The Takeaway in the past to discuss never-published stories he's found by Tennessee Williams, John Steinbeck, and William Faulkner.

His latest discovery comes from the deep trove of H.G. Wells. The short story is called "The Haunted Ceiling," and Gulli discovered it by going through the thousands of titles in the rare books section of the University of Illinois library.

He joins The Takeaway to discuss the story, which is about a man who sees strange apparitions on the ceiling of his bedroom at night.
