*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: Here’s a monstrously large addition to our selection of horror books, consisting of works by William Hope Hodgson, Robert E Howard, H P Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith as well as a plethora of other authors marshalled into anthologies by Herbert Van Thal. Hodgson’s blend of Science Fiction and Horror is represented by The House On The Borderland (cover art by Ed Emshwiller) and The Night Land Volume 1 and 2. Howard’s contribution is an early work of Fantasy/Horror, Wolfshead (cover art by Frank Frazetta). We have five books by Lovecraft: The Colour Out Of Space And Others, The Shadow Over Innsmouth And Other Stories Of Horror, The Tomb And Other Tales, The Lurker At The Threshold and The Survivor And Others (the last two also have August Derleth as author). In addition we have Lin Carter’s study of the master, Lovecraft: A Look Behind The Cthulhu Mythos. Rounding this update off is Smith with The City Of The Singing Flame and The Last Incantation and four Pan Books Of Horror edited by Van Thal, consisting of #5, #8, #12 and #21. If this isn’t enough to make your blood run cold we don’t know what is!
*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: This update is brimming over with terrifying tales. Shiver with Lovecraft’s Library double Sinister House/Cold Harbour (Leland Hall and Francis Brett Young), while from Lovecraft himself there’s The Dunwich Horror And Others (in a prestigious Arkham House HC edition) and from Lovecraft and August Derleth there’s The Lurker At The Threshold. Tremble as you read The Horror Stories Of Robert E Howard, a collection of tales by Jerome K Jerome, City Of The Sea And Other Ghost Stories (a special limited edition), or Lair Of The Dreamer: A Cthulhu Mythos Omnibus by Franklin Searight. Finally, if your nerves are up to it there are two novels by Ira Levin, Rosemary’s Baby and The Stepford Wives, The Novel of the Black Seal by Arthur Machen and a perennial favourite, Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: An update for Horror fans this time, with works by Charles Beaumont (Shadow Play and The Edge, both 1st UK PB), E F Benson (The Horror Horn, 1st UK PB), Algernon Blackwood (Dance Of Death), H P Lovecraft alone (The Lurking Fear, 1st UK PB, and The Shadow Over Innsmouth) and with August Derleth (The Lurker At The Threshold and The Shuttered Room) and Bram Stoker (Dracula’s Guest and The Lair Of The White Worm). All of these authors have strong claims to being a Master of the Macabre: Charles Beaumont wrote many Twilight Zone stories, E F Benson was a wide ranging and versatile author (he also wrote Mapp & Lucia) while the other four authors need no supporting evidence.
*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: A small, overdue, restocking of the Horror subsection, with two H P Lovecraft classics, three Dennis Wheatley shockers and Stephen King’s masterly overview of the Horror genre in Danse Macabre. Lovecraft’s only full-length novel, The Case of Charles Dexter Ward is joined by a collection of six of his shorter stories in The Shadow Over Innsmouth. From Dennis Wheatley we have three of his most famous novels: The Devil Rides Out, To the Devil – A Daughter and The Haunting Of Toby Jugg.
*Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: We have added replacement copies of several titles by H P Lovecraft, including The Haunter of The Dark, The Lurking Fear, The Tomb, The Lurker At The Threshold, The Shuttered Room and The Horror In The Museum, most with classic Panther edition covers.
