Every Friday, we here @ Del Rey Spectra will place a 50 page excerpt of a selected title on Suvudu. Whether it is science fiction, epic fantasy, alternate history, horror, urban fantasy, paranormal, the possibilities are endless.
Everyone loves a good ghost story. This week’s excerpt comes from The Horror in the Museum, an anthology of short horror stories, perfect for this time of year. Lovecraft’s stories can go hand in hand with Jack-o-lantern carving, dark nights, and scary movies.
Some tales in this collection were inspired by H. P. Lovecraft, others he revised, two he co-authored–but all bear the mark of the master of primordial terror.
The Horror in the Museum–Locked up for the night, a man will discover the difference between waxen grotesqueries and the real thing.
The Electric Executioner–Aboard a train, a traveler must match wits with a murderous madman.
The Trap–This mirror wants a great deal more than your reflection.
The Ghost-Eater–In an ancient woodland, the past comes to life with a bone-crunching vengeance.
AND TWENTY MORE STORIES OF UNSPEAKABLE EVIL.
Stephen King has called H. P. Lovecraft “the twentieth century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale.” Doesn’t that alone make you want to read on?
