Forgotten, but not completely gone.

    I’ve received thousands of letters saying more or less this…
  “Hey Doug, that may be all well and good that you love these stinky, yellowing old books. But where can I, the young un-initiated reader find these treasures in a more modern and accessible form?”
  Ok, no one has actually asked me that. This is though, a suggestion sent to me by contest winner “Nick Montelongo”. He suggested that I show readers where many of these stories that I write about can be found today. As much as I lament the disappearance of many of these authors and stories there are still quite a few affordable collections to be found out there. All of these editions I’m presenting today are still currently in print and are all available from either “Barnes & Noble” or “Amazon”. They are also all available directly from their respective publishers.

 I’m trying to make some changes in my Blog format. I’ve tried to “improve2 my Blog header and I’ve change all of the texts to a more readable Font type. This suggestion came from contest winner “Patrik Halberg”.

The title of the “Mystery Cover” is “The Red Brain”. Edited by “Dashiell Hammett” and published by Belmont Books back in 1961. “Roger Reus” was the only person to know the book! Congratulations Roger! Your book is on its way! Nick wins the copy of Bloch’s “The Star Stalker” and Patrik has won a copy of “Night’s Yawning Peal”. Thanks guys!

And now to the books!!

All of these anthologies contain reprints  that are from the late 19th century when the horror story started to take on it's modern form up to the pre WWII  Horror Pulps such as "Weird Tales". Many of the stories in these new collections have appeared in earlier out of print anthologies from the 1940s. 1950s,1960s and 1970s. 

All of these books are all "affordable" paperbacks that can be optained on-line or hopefully from most "non-virtual" book stores.
