Rivals of Weird Tales offers a selection of the best stories from Weird Tales' cutthroat competition: Tales of Magic and Mystery, Strange Tales of Mystery and Terror, Horror Stories, Strange Stories, Unknown/Unknown Worlds, Fantastic Adventures, Stirring Science Stories, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, and Beyond Fantasy Fiction. Edited by experts in the field, this fearsome anthology includes many stories previously available only to wealthy pulp magazine collectors. Among the stories are H. P. Lovecraft's "Cool Air"; Clark Ashton Smith's "The Return of the Sorcerer"; and Jack Williamson's "Wolves of Darkness" ~strange, strange that there ran with the wolf pack a girl with fierce green eyes. In Robert E. Howard's "The Cairn on the Headland," the Northern lights play on Grimmin's Cairn; Hugh B. Cave's "Imp of Satan" opens the door to hell for John Barrett and his new bride. You'll find Henry Kuttner's "Cursed Be the City," August Derleth's "Logoda's Heads," and Carl Jacobi's "Spawn of Blackness." In "Doomed" by Seabury Quinn, love and life come at last to McCumber~but he discovers that redemption is only for the damned; H. L. Gold's "Warm Dark Places" will make you check your pockets for a second time; and Norvell W. Page's "But Without Horns" pits man against the challenge of the Superman. Cleve Cartmill's "Oscar, " Theodore Sturgeon's "Shottle Bop," L. Sprague de Camp's "Mr. Arson," and Fritz Leiber's "The Hill and the Hole" are all terrifying twists of the imagination. There was one person in rationed, meatless Paris who was well~fed ~at least in Jane Rice's "The Refugee." One minute a man can be smoking, drinking, or playing records . Then, whoosh, he's gone, into "The Anomaly of the Empty Man" by Anthony Boucher. And, finally, a story recognizable from its Twilight Zone adaptation, "Sorry, Right Number" by Richard Matheson~certainly the phone's a comfort for a lonely old lady, as long as there are people on the other end. Lock the door, look under the bed. Remember, no matter how bad things seem, they can always get worse~ in Rivals of Weird Tales. Bookseller Inventory # 1051502
