Ghost Stories And Other Queer Tales

Posted by demonik on April 4, 2009

Anon [Percy W. Everett?] – Ghost Stories And Other Queer Tales (Pearson, 1931)

“A compendium of  Uncanny Stories (Pearson, 1916) and More Uncanny Stories (Pearson, 1918) with some additional stories from The Novel Magazine” – Michael Ashley & William Contento,  The Supernatural Index: A listing of fantasy, supernatural, occult, weird, and horror anthologies (Greenwood Publishing Group, 1995)

W. G. Litt – The Armless Man
Lewis Lister – The Terror By Night
Ernest R. Punshon – The Last Ascent
Hermine Black & Edith Blair Staples – The Mailed Foot
Theo Douglas [Mrs. H. Everett] – The Pipers Of Mallory
Paul Eardsley – The Jungle
Roy Vickers – The Eighth Lamp
Ernest R. Punshon – The Unknown Quantity
Cecil Morgan & Scudamore Jarvis – The Tomtom Clue
Margaret Strickland – The Case Of Sir Alister Morran
M. E. Royce – The Kiss
Roy Vickers – The Goth
Gladys Stern – The Tragedy Of The Loup Noir
Ernest R. Punshon – The Haunted Chessmen
Hubert Dayne – The Second Chance
William Pollock – The Man Who Got Back

E. F. Bleiler dismisses the bulk of the stories as “reminiscent of  Weird Tales in the 1920’s” and “Mostly crude horror”, the latter a comment he has applied to the Not At Night series, so depending on your point of view, a massive put-down or a huge endorsement.
