Hugh Lamb – A Wave Of Fear

Posted by demonik on September 1, 2007

Hugh Lamb (ed.) – A Wave Of Fear (W.H. Allen, 1973)

L. A . Lewis – The Child
Eleanor Scott – Celui-La
Ambrose Bierce – A Resumed Identity
M. P. Shiel – Huguenin’s Wife
H. R. Wakefield – Blind Man’s Buff
Charles Birkin – Marjorie’s On Starlight
L. T. C. Rolt – Hawley Bank Foundry
Marjorie Bowen – Twilight
A. C. Benson – Basil Netherby
E. F. Benson – Wishing well
R. H. Benson – The Traveller
Joy Burnett – Phantom silhouette
Frederick Cowles – Terrible Mrs. Green
D. K. Broster – Clairvoyance
J. D. Beresford – The Late Occupier
Robert W. Chambers – The Messenger
Vivian Meik – A Honeymoon In Hate

For people who always wanted to know what happens when a steamroller runs over somebody’s head – you’re in luck!

A bit different for Hugh, this one, as he’s allowed some contemporary writers in to mix it with the Victorian and Edwardian types. The Wishing Well wins it for E. F. in the battle of the Benson brothers – this is up there with The Face as one of his grimmest offerings with a suitably haunting ending. Birkin shows that he still has the knack from his Creeps days. The great Frederick Cowles’ Terrible Mrs. Green is just that, and Lamb concludes his book in traditional manner with a great slab of voodoo Grand Guignol.
