Terror Tales, Volume 1

Among fans of classic pulp fiction, aficionados of supernatural stories consider Popular Publications' Terror Tales, the magazine, for people who found the Lovecraftian stories in Weird Tales too tame and Universal's classic monsters too Hollywood! Between 1934 and 1941, Terror Tales and its legion of unholy authors spewed forth an unremitting litany of horror, terror, torment, and torture - all directed at ordinary American couples faced with supernatural menaces torn from their deepest, darkest nightmares. Think Scream during the Great Depression.

    Criminals quaked at the name The Secret 6. And for four glorious issues, this team of six crimefighters took on some of the weirdest and most fantastic antogonists that ever reared their heads in the pulp magazines. It was where weird menace met six normal men with no strange gadgets or outlandish skills. But after four issues, the over-the-top action came to an end and Popular Publications pulled the plug on the series. These vintage pulp tales are now reissued for today's listeners as audiobooks.

    The maddest of the mad scientists - Doctor Death - starred in his own bizarre pulp magazine in early 1935. He consorted with demons, elementals, zombies, disinterred mummies, and other unclean denizens of Hell. Standing against him were the Secret 12, a band of the top U.S. civil and business leaders, headed by Jimmy Holm, a millionaire criminologist and occultist. One of the rare unabashedly supernatural series the pulps ever produced, Doctor Death returns in vintage pulp tales, reissued as audiobooks.

    Last year, Night Shade Books unleashed The Book of Cthulhu onto an unsuspecting world. Critically acclaimed as the ultimate Cthulhu anthology” and a must read’ for fans of Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos,” The Book of Cthulhu went where no collection of mythos tales had gone before: to the very edge of madness and beyond. For nearly a century, H. P. Lovecraft’s tales of malevolent Great Old Ones existing beyond the dimensions of this world, beyond the borders of sanity, have captured and held the imaginations of writers and aficionados of the dark, the macabre, the fantastic, and the horrible. Now, because you demanded more, anthologist Ross E. Lockhart has risked all to dive back into the Cthulhu canon, combing through mind-shattering manuscripts and moldering tomes to bring you The Book of Cthulhu 2, with even more tales of tentacles, terror, and madness.

    Seth Grahame-Smith delivers the definitive, essential guide to making it through a horror movie in one piece. As hilarious as it is useful (if you’re trapped in a scary flick, that is), How to Survive a Horror Movie covers all the bases. Trapped in a haunted house? Check. Stalked by an evil doll? Check. Wandering aimlessly through the remains of the old world as a plague of zombies sweeps over the planet? Check.

Publisher's Summary

Among fans of classic pulp fiction, aficionados of supernatural stories consider Popular Publications' Terror Tales, the magazine, for people who found the Lovecraftian stories in Weird Tales too tame and Universal's classic monsters too Hollywood!

Between 1934 and 1941, Terror Tales and its legion of unholy authors spewed forth an unremitting litany of horror, terror, torment, and torture - all directed at ordinary American couples faced with supernatural menaces torn from their deepest, darkest nightmares. Think Scream during the Great Depression.

We have selected seven of the most compelling stories torn from the pages of Terror Tales for this sampler from hell.

In Paul Ernst's horrific "The Mummy Maker", an innocent woman faces the fearsome fate of being mummified alive! Norvell Page's disquieting "Accursed Thirst" takes us into the dark mind of a vampire - or is it a werewolf? The specter of a dead Egyptian deity loosed upon the modern world comes alive in E. Hoffmann Price's eerie "The Cat Goddess". Asian elementals harass the curious in Arthur J. Burks' creepy "Six Doors to Death". G. T. Fleming-Robert's gruesome "Moulder of Monsters" serves up twisted human flesh. Maitland Scott's unsettling "Shadows of Desire" leads us inexorably to a traumatic climax. Finally, terror and horror compete for supremacy in Frederick C. Davis deeply disturbing "Dig Deep the Graves!"

Terror Tales is narrated with appropriate doom-laden solemnity by Joey D'Auria and Michael C. Gwynne. Shivers await! Horrors abound! Try not to listen after midnight. We are serious about this. Not for children!
