Remembered mainly for his work on The Spider and Operator #5, Wayne Rogers was also one of the premier authors in the weird menace genre with over fifty stories appearing in Dime Mystery Magazine, Terror Tales, and Horror Stories and another handful published by the competition at Thrilling Mystery. Rogers' work is the consummate blending of the Gothic atmosphere and brutal violence that was the hallmark of the genre. While many of his contemporaries abandoned the genre, Wayne Rogers had found a comfortable niche for himself and was still producing new and inventive yarns as late as 1941. This second collection of his tales gathers eleven stories, including several early rarities published under the pseudonym of "H.M Appel," and one utilizing his later byline as "Conrad Kimball." Included herein is a snapshot of the period from 1934-1937, giving the reader an overview of the genre's most fertile period. This is the second of a projected series of six volumes which will collect the majority of Wayne Rogers short stories and novelettes.
