Vault Of Evil
This section: British Horror Anthologies:
The Other Tentacles
The Fontana Chapter: Fontana Horror and Ghost publications from the early ‘sixties through to 1984 when the twentieth and final volume of The Fontana Book Of Ghost Stories saw print. The selection attempts to provide short plot synopsis’ of all the stories featured in the Ghost and Horror series’, the Tales Of Terror books, Mary Danby’s two volume Frighteners and more. A similar attempt is made on all four 65 Great juggernauts published by Octopus. Also includes a covers gallery.
NEW in 2009: Nasty Nels: Your daily NEL. Circumstances permitting, at least one New English Library or Four Square paperback from the ‘sixties and ‘seventies added every 24 hours from May 11 2009.
Morbid Mayflowers: Index to the Black magic-heavy horror anthologies, novels and non-fiction published by Mayflower (sometimes in conjunction with Dell) during the ‘sixties and seventies.
Pan Horrors: The famous Van Thal/ Paget Pan Book of Horror Stories and beyond. Not long after starting work on it, i learned of Tikit’s magnificent The First Twenty Five Years of PAN Paperback Books which made the entire project redundant, hence lack of updates!
Panther Horror: Based on the Panther Horror In Paperback listing compiled by Justin Marriott which first appeared in Paperback Dungeon #2, Summer 2007. It’s been slightly expanded for purposes of this blog, though not so you’d notice! Needless to say, there is a covers gallery.
Sordid Sphere’s: Based on Justin Marriott’s Sphere Horror In The 1970’s – The Checklist in Paperback Fanatic #1 (August 2007). Click on the book titles in bold for cover scans and/ or more information about a particular item. Also featured two image galleries covering Sphere publications of the ‘seventies and ‘eighties.
Terrible Tandems: from the early ‘sixties through to the mid-seventies Tandem published a small but significant number of horror and witchcraft titles and this is an attempt to catalogue them.
Terror Takeaways: began life as the film/tv novelisation arm of the Vault site but it’s been reworked and expanded upon for EP.
Gruesome Cargoes: a straight copy of the pointless site I had on batcave. This one concerns itself with Christine Campbell Thomson’s Not At Night and Charles Birkin’s Creeps series’ from between the world wars.
*** All of the above are intended to compliment the Vault Of Evil forum which you are strongly advised to consult for further comment on many of these titles. ***
