Overview

Old Masson had a secret-- One of Salem's oldest and most decrepit cemeteries was put in Old Masson's charge, but he didn't mind--he was more than sufficiently compensated by the treasures the newly departed wholeheartedly offered him. Unfortunately, he always seemed to have to work harder to earn his keep, for he had an unusual rival to match: rats! The critters, large as cats, often took whole bodies out of the coffins and into some dark, sinister place--where it is rumored that ghouls and evil creatures worse than the rats dwell. Old Masson never worried, though; these were, after all, just rumors--and they were, after all, just rats. Or were they? Also contains the stories: THE EGO MACHINE, WHERE THE WORLD IS QUIET, PROBLEM WITH ETHICS, WHAT HATH ME?, and the classic HOME IS THE HUNTER.

Editorial Reviews

Author of "Fahrenheit 451" - Ray Bradbury
“Special, peculiar and […] manically creative. […] In all probability hundreds of imitations [of Kuttner’s work] were written by struggling as well as by published authors. I count myself among them. I very much doubt that my ‘Zero Hour’ or for that matter ‘The Veldt’ would ever have leaped out of my typewriter if Kuttner’s imagination had not lead the way.”
The New York Times
"Kuttner has power, a way with words and grasp of technique…[he] brings to science fiction the surrealistic (but logical) vividness of the best fantasy…the most imaginative and literary of science-fantasy writers."
Saturday Review
“First degree entertainment!”

Meet the Author

Henry Kuttner (1915-1958) sold his first short story, "The Graveyard Rats," to "Weird Tales" magazine in 1936. He went on to write 170 short stories and 15 novels in the science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres. The prolific, acclaimed author often wrote in collaboration with his wife, C.L. Moore, and his classic stories served as inspiration for the major motion picture "The Last Mimzy." Hailed by Ray Bradbury as "a neglected master" and "a man who shaped science fiction and fantasy in its most important years," Kuttner's work is not to be missed.
