This week we have a story about treasure hunters and ghosts in the Old West from Joseph J Patchen, and an account of Scottish monsters and mayhem from Gary Murphy. Keeping with the Caledonian theme we follow with a classic Robert E Howard story of Bran Mak Morn, who seeks revenge on his Roman foes by recourse to dark forces. And then another classic, a story of an artist whose work shocks the otherwise unshockable, a remarkable prescient description of the career of Stephen Cooney from the master of horror, HP Lovecraft his eldritch self.
The Days of Mr Thomas continues. In The Thousand and One Nights, everything’s going well for people in Damascus and Baghdad—would that it were so in the modern world. In Rob Bliss’ Cut, Betty thinks she’s going crazy. In Joseph Rubas’ It! The Thing, a hitman’s client wants him to take out his old buddy from ’Nam. In The Smoky God, the explorers of the inner earth return to the world above, for better or for worse in the penultimate installment of this classic adventure. And Gulliver of Mars is unsure if he is among the living or the dead.
