October is Horror Month!

October may be our favorite month because it's Fall, the leaves are turning, it's cooled down from the hot summer and Halloween is on its way. We exclusively put out new Fantasy and Horror titles during October.

We love these pulp fiction Horror titles because they show the most imagination of all the genres. Authors are free to indulge their wildest fantasies. And so they do...

So far this month we have added:
The Hounds of Tindalos and Other Stories by Frank Belknap Long, Jr.

Five stories of horror from Frank Belknap Long, Jr. including two classic contributions to the Cthulhu Mythos.

The Red Fetish (1930) – Weird adventures among savage head-hunters— a red-headed man runs afoul of cannibals
The Were-Snake (1925) – Arthur Fights With the Goddess Ishtar in Her Subterranean Retreat
A novelette of three chapters
The Space-Eaters (1928) – A tremendous menace closed in upon the earth from outside the solar system— a powerful story of uncanny horror
A novelette of three chapters
The Hounds of Tindalos (1929) – A tale of unutterable horror— of a pursuit by loathsome entities through the ages and through the dimensions
A novelette of five chapters
The Black Druid (1930) – A short tale that compresses a world of cosmic horror in its few pages

The Challenge From Beyond by C.L. Moore, A. Merritt, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, & Frank Belknap Long

In 1935, Fantasy Magazine was coming up on its 3rd Anniversary and editor Julius Schwartz (later of DC Comics) wanted to do something special. He conceived of the idea of a “composite story” (round-robin story) to commemorate the event. Actually Schwartz conceived of the idea of two such stories, both called “The Challenge from Beyond.” One story would be in the Science Fiction genre and the other in the Weird Fiction genre. This volume is of the latter.

This ebook is FREE and we encourage you to get a copy and enjoy the fantastic interplay between the writing talents enlisted for this project.
We have two more ebooks in production right now that will come out later this month:
The Bride of Osiris by Otis Adelbert Kline, and a collection of stories by Gaston Leroux, author of The Phantom of the Opera.
After that maybe something by Victor Rousseau or G.G. Pendarves? Who knows?
It wouldn't be Horror Month without some Horror ebooks on sale, so....

On Sale This Month.

Shambleau by C.L. Moore
Had Northwest Smith, the famous outlaw of the spaceways, been able to foresee the future, he would not have shielded the frightened, scarlet-clad girl from the wild mob pursuing her through the narrow streets of Lakkdarol, Earth’s last colony on Mars. “Shambleau! Shambleau!” the crowd cried with loathing and disgust, but Smith drove them off with his blaster and took the exhausted girl to his quarters. There was no hair upon her face — neither brows nor lashes; but what lay hidden beneath the tight scarlet turban bound around her head?
