Posted by demonik on November 12, 2007

Mike Jarvis & John Spencer – Echoes Of Terror (Hamlyn, 1980)


Gordon Crabb

Charles Dickens – A Madman’s Manuscript
Lord Halifax – Three In A Bed
Edgar Allan Poe – Masque Of The Red Death
Bram Stoker – Dracula (Extract)
O. Henry – The Furnished Room
William Mudford – The Forsaken Of God
Frederick Marryat – The Werewolf
Matthew Lewis – The Midnight Embrace (Extract from “The Monk”)
William Makepeace Thackery – The Devil’s Wager
W. W. Jacobs – The Monkey’s Paw
Saki – The Seventh Pullet

As ade has pointed out elsewhere, this over-sized collection isn’t about the largely over-familiar written content, but the marvellous illo’s, many of which would go on to become cover paintings themselves.

For the record, the artists showcased are Jim Burns, Gordon Crabb, Les Edwards, Bob Fowke, Peter Goodfellow, Stuart Hughes, Terry Oakes and George Smith.

  1. Happy to see your blog. I also worked on Echoes of Terror with Mike Jarvis and John Spencer. What’s your connection? Have a look at my website. Some of the old names are still there.

    Thanks Alison. The Gordon Crabb painting on the cover of ‘Echoes Of Terror’ is a particular favourite of mine and I was delighted to have an opportunity to see his recent work.

    I’ve no connection with ‘Echoes …’ or any of the other titles featured on here, just a fan of them who thinks he should maybe try paying something back.

    The road to Hell is paved with good intentions :)

    I recently aquired the book as above mentioned although I bought it fairly inexpensive in a second hand store it didn’t come with a protective jacket. Can I get one from somewhere?
