"Creeping up from the depths of years, Death Stalks the Night presents gripping reading for a long stretch of cold, gloomy, rainy nights." -- Perry M. Grayson, Necrofile This collection by Hugh B. Cave was nominated for a World Fantasy Award. Originally scheduled as a Carcosa release, it includes eighteen novelettes and short stories dating from the Thirties. The collection was assembled and edited by Karl Edward Wagner. The genre was called "weird menace," and it melded hard﷓boiled adventure with horror. Mad villains and their twisted henchmen abound, ever ready to kidnap and torture some beautiful, scantily﷓clad victim. The heroes were tough, two﷓fisted men of action, and action was what it was all about. Foreword by the author. Introduction by the Karl Edward Wagner.
