Overview

At last the floor became level and Kane sensed that the cave was much larger there. The air seemed better, though the darkness was just as impenetrable. Suddenly he stopped dead in his tracks. From somewhere in front of him there came a strange indescribable rustling. Without warning something smote him in the face and slashed wildly. All about him sounded the eerie murmurings of many small wings and suddenly Kane smiled crookedly, amused, relieved and chagrined. Bats, of course. The cave was swarming with them. Still, it was a shaky experience, and as he went on and the wings whispered through the vast emptiness of the great cavern, Kane's mind found space to dally with a bizarre thought— had he wandered into Hell by some strange means, and were these in truth bats, or were they lost souls winging through everlasting night?

You've got to get this book, even if you've read some of the other stories just to read 'The Fearsome Touch of Death,' a strange little study in fear, is one of the most unknown of REH's stories of all, and this marks it's first appearance in book form since it debuted in Weird Tales in Feb 1930. REH is the best adverture story teller wordsmith of all time! I special ordered this at Barnes & Noble at their customer service desk along with two other REH books. It's quick, easy, and free shipping. Visit your local Used Book Store and you might find some REH gems like I did! Tell others about REH. They're in for a real treat.
