I know some of you bought Weird Menace Volume 1 when it went on sale a few weeks ago. (Thank you!) Well, the second volume is now available in both electronic and print editions. It’s a fine companion to the first volume. And remember, the set makes a fine Christmas gift!
Here’s the announcement Rough Edges Press publisher James Reasoner posted last night:
The Shudder Pulps are back! In fact, it’s like they never left in this second great collection of new stories inspired by the classic Weird Menace magazines such as DIME MYSTERY and TERROR TALES. Those pulps may have ended in the early 1940s, but some of today’s top authors give us the same sort of pulse-pounding, spine-chilling tales they might have published if they had stayed around.
World War II casts its looming shadow in Mel Odom’s “The Spider-God of Nauru!”
Hell comes to a tropical paradise in Keith Chapman’s “Lust of the Cave Spirit”.
American GIs encounter a horror unlike any they ever expected in Michael Bracken’s “Attack of the Nazi Snow Warriors”.
Weird Menace mixes with hardboiled detective thrills in Paul Dellinger’s “Ghost Writer”.
The protagonist of John McCallum Swain’s “The Hades Mechanism” confronts a legendary, undying evil.
And Ray Lovato’s popular character Doc Atlas returns to face a new challenge in “Howl of the Werewolf”!
These action-packed stories are sure to entertain. Editor James Reasoner and Rough Edges Press are proud to present WEIRD MENACE VOLUME 2!
