Ronald Holmes – Macabre Military Stories

Posted by demonik on October 8, 2007

Ronald Holmes (ed.) – Macabre Military Stories (Leo Cooper, 1979)

Washington Irving – The Bold Dragoon
Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch – The Roll Call of the Reef
Barbara Softly – Master Ghost & I
Robert Sheckley – The Battle
Evan Hunter – The Scarlet King
Seabury Quinn – And Give Us Yesterday
Robert Bloch – The Living Dead
C E Montague – Trade Report Only
Arthur Machen – The Soldiers’ Rest
Captain George Eliot – The Copper Bowl
James Grant – The Phantom Regiment
B W Saville – Apparitions
John Galt – The Black Ferry

It was only while revamping the Vault *ahem* “site” recently that I noticed the names ‘Ron Holmes’, ‘Ronald Holmes’ and ‘Ronald E. Holmes’ were turning up with some frequency and stap me if they’re not all the same fellow and the author of Witchfinder General (Herbert Jenkings, 1966, Pan 1968) is also responsible for The Legend Of Sawney Beane (Muller, 1975: Mews, 1976), Witchcraft In British History and, as editor, Macabre Railway Stories (Star, 1983). Not a bad track record by any means.
