Publisher's Summary

Long before he became the author of polished romances for the slick magazines, of best-seller novels and firsthand-researched travel books, Hugh B. Cave wrote some of the most grisly and chilling horror stories every to appear in the pulps. Crawling forth from the Depression years - from the haunted pages of Strange Tales, Weird Tales, Ghost Stories, Spicy Mystery Stories, Black Book Detective, and elsewhere - Wildside presents an omnibus of vintage nightmares, twenty-six of the best horror tales of Hugh B. Cave.

This will be a Crossroad Press production.

Solid Pulp Horror stories

I would say that Hugh B. Cave was not a great innovator, but a solid and capable writer in the terse pulp fiction style. His fiction consists of vampires, voluptuous women, men of action, and the mad. His writing reminds one of pulp era tales of the criminal underworld, with quick paced action, smoking revolvers, and fists connecting squarely with jaws, but his antagonists tend to the supernatural and science fictional rather than your run-of-the-mill gangsters and gun molls. All in all an enjoyable collection of pulp horror tales.

This author is OBSESSED with women's boobs!!!

Absolutely every story has a pair of naked, white, trembling, (his words not mine) breast.

Just not very good

What disappointed you about Murgunstrumm & Others?

Apart from some flashes this was all pretty dull, dated weaker pulp material. Sub-Howard with occasional nods/borrowings of Lovecraftian phrases.

What was most disappointing about Hugh B. Cave’s story?

One or two were quite OK but very repetitive thematically. Characters of very thin card.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Not bad but occasional odd pronunciations.

Any additional comments?

At a loss to understand some of the higher ratings given the often weak material.
