The Black Gargoyle and Other Stories by Hugh B. Cave

From the Amazon, to darkest Africa, to Borneo and the East Indies, four stories of the monsters and eldritch demons that inhabit the jungles around the world.

The Crawling Curse (1933) – A shivery tale of an East Indian murder and the ghastly fate that hounded the murderer to his doom

The Cult of the White Ape (1933)- An eldritch story of blackest Africa, where strange occult magic is still worked —a horror-story of the Dark Continent

The Black Gargoyle (1934) – A tale of goose-flesh horror in the jungles of Borneo—a story of stark terror and the strange doom of an evil white man

The City of Crawling Death (1932) – Ants—droves of them—as big as panthers—ants that made slaves of men and threatened civilization with destruction

Hugh Barnett Cave (1910–2004)was a very prolific writer of horror, weird menace and science fiction. After World War II, Cave lived in Haiti for five years and wrote Haiti: High Road to Adventure, a nonfiction work acclaimed critically as the “best report on voodoo in English.”
