Overview

Winner of the 1978 World Fantasy Award For Best Collection

Long before he became the author of polished romances for the slick magazines, of best-seller novels and firsthand-researched travel books -- Hugh B. Cave wrote some of the most grisly and chilling horror stories ever to appear in the pulps. Crawling forth from the Depression years -- from the haunted pages of Strange Tales, Weird Tales, Ghost Stories, Spicy Mystery Stories, Black Book Detective Magazine, Thrilling Mysteries, and elsewhere.

Be warned. This is a collection of Horror Tales.

Murgunstrumm and Others abounds with haunted houses, ravenous vampires, slobbering monsters, fiends human and inhuman, nights dark and stormy, corpses fresh and rotting. These stories exemplify the gothic horror thrillers of the 1930s -- no-holds-barred lurid chillers of violent action and scream-in-the-night terror. Like a vintage horror movie, Murgunstrumm and Others is an experience to be savoured best on a stormy, lonely night.
