    Thanks for posting the contents of these anthologies, invaluable resource for those interested. Next comes a cheeky question: could you copy the Visiak stories and mail them to me in PDF? Hard to find stories by him. These anthologies are doorstops, weight-wise, I understand and I don’t relish the surely prohibitive shipping price (I’m cheap). Visiak’s “Medusa” is crazy expensive (but I may give up and shell out yet) and the description of it by Karl Edward Wagner in 100 Best Horror Books is agonizingly tantalizing. He says, to paraphrase, ‘Robert Louis Stevenson by way of William Burroughs’ everyone needs to read it obviously!

    Cheers, Dan
