Horror of the 20th Century: An Illustrated History
As long as there have been storytellers, audiences have sought stories that make their flesh creep and their blood curdle. These are the tales that have been read furtively under covers or retold in whispers by the light of campfires. From Horace Walpole to Stephen King, the masters of horror have offered us such tales of the eerie and the spectral. Author Robert Weinberg has assembled the best of these phantasmal visions in Horror of the Twentieth Century. Here is a vivid recounting of the writers, illustrators, publishers, actors, and filmmakers who for more than two centuries satisfied the fluctuating tastes of their audiences. Every media from comics, paperbacks, hardcovers and movies is cataloged.
