Overview

"The Mummy." The first things that come to mind are the curse...reanimation...and revenge. But what further mysteries are to be unwrapped in the tombs of the Ancient Egyptians? And what horrors still lie buried in the imaginations of the immortal talents who have explored this realm of the fantastic? In this thrilling anthology, writers as diverse as Anne Rice (unveiling a chilling excerpt from her novel The Mummy or Ramses the Damned), Tennessee Williams (in his first published piece), Louisa May Alcott (at her most unexpectedly startling), and an actual Egyptian priest (penning his tale in 300 B.C.), venture Into the Mummy's Tomb for tales of the undead that have survived for eternity in nightmares of the living.

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.
