The Third Cry to Legba and Other Invocations: Selected Stories of Manly Wade Wellman, Volume 1 | [Manly Wade Wellman]

The Third Cry to Legba and Other Invocations: Selected Stories of Manly Wade Wellman, Volume 1

This audiobook collects Wellman’s John Thunstone and Lee Corbet stories, written between 1943 and 1979. These stories combine the mystical and horrific with traditional Southern folk tales and legends. These stories also reveal a post-World War II modernism that make them much more then pulp romanticism. The paranoia and cynicism of modern weird icons, such as The X-files, may well have had their genesis in the pulp musings of Manly Wade Wellman.

Audible Editor Reviews

This collection of Manly Wade Wellman’s intriguing, mystifying, and eerie stories featuring John Thunstone and Lee Cobbet is guaranteed to inspire paranoia and thrills. Brian Troxell gives voice to the disturbing, sometimes alarming, and always entertaining adventures of these investigators of the supernatural from a master of mystically romantic pulp horror. Stories featuring playboy detective of the supernatural, Thunstone, and fellow occult expert Cobbet include, besides the title story famous for introducing Thunstone and arch-enemy, sorcerer Rowley Thorne, "The Golden Goblins", "Hoofs", "The Letters of Cold Fire", "John Thunstone's Inheritance", "Sorcery from Thule", "The Dead Man's Hand", and "The Shonokins".

Publisher's Summary

This audiobook collects Wellman’s John Thunstone and Lee Corbet stories, written between 1943 and 1979. These stories combine the mystical and horrific with traditional Southern folk tales and legends. These stories also reveal a post-World War II modernism that make them much more then pulp romanticism. The paranoia and cynicism of modern weird icons, such as The X-files, may well have had their genesis in the pulp musings of Manly Wade Wellman. Indeed the intensely driven, idealistic occult investigator, John Thunstone, could be a pulp/noir stand-in for Fox Mulder.
