No curse to this excellent anthology
With last years¿ very good movie and the sequel coming out shortly, mummies are popular. This collection centers on mummies and will surprise the reader with its vast range of tales. Then again, the fourteen authors contributing short stories read like a college literature book. If nothing else grips the audience, notables such as Twain, Doyle, Alcott, Williams, Lovecraft, Christie, Haggard, Poe, Kipling, Stoker, Bradbury, Rohmer, Rice, and Peters have entries. Also included are commentaries by archeologist Howard Carter of Tut fame, an ancient Egyptian Priest, Egyptologist and Carter peer Arthur Weigall, and other noted Egyptologists. This anthology is excellent for its fiction alone, but turns ultra-superb with its enlightening look at real mummies, their tombs, and their ¿curses¿. INTO THE MUMMY¿S TOMB is a great collection that horror readers and fans of Ancient history will enjoy in one sitting. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
