Edmund Snell wrote an almost uncountable number of stories for the pulps, many of them about exotic climes like Borneo. THE BACK OF BEYOND is considered to be the best -- and the hardest to find -- of his Borneo sagas. In it, real people battle the problems of life in the wild and untamed, including the native people. This is a classic of the genre, and a must-have for every serious collector's library. This edition contains an almost-complete bibliography of Edmund Snell's novels and novellas, compiled by John Pelan, who writes the introduction.
Written in 1924, this may be the first exotic thriller written by Edmund Snell, who again takes us into the exotic jungles of Borneo in THE CRIMSON BUTTERFLY. This novel tells a weird tale of hypnotism and sorcery, and features a mysterious insect whose sting is death to man, and whose wings look like pieces of raw beef. It takes all the wiles and courage of the English officials, the natives, and a visiting professor and his daughter, to get beyond the superstition surrounding the Butterfly and to track it to its lair

The Library of Death begins at a leisurely pace, and a tone that seems to set the stage for a light romance. But then Ronald S.L. Harding deftly builds the mystery and from the moment we learn of the legend of a headless spectre that purportedly stalks the grounds and rumors of hereditary vampirism the novel undergoes another transformation with the light tone of the early chapters forgotten as horror is piled upon horror . . . So says John Pelan's introduction to this 1938 horror classic.
SCIFTAN: a proper noun of ultimately unknown origin, taking from the Old Frisian alt. transitive: sciff: to mutate, and tannin: one who. Modern English translation: SHIFTER Richard Locke is a poet. He hasn't written much since Clare, the woman he was going to propose to, told him she wasn't in love with him anymore. Captain Jack Cordesman is investigating a series of murders in which the victims appear to have been partially eaten. So far the only evidence linking these murders are the red, female hairs found at the crime scenes and a bar napkin with one of Locke's poems scribbled on it. With a rundown mansion, priceless automobiles, and guest houses filled with brutalities the likes of which you'll never forget, Shifters is full of fun time gore...and monsters.

Six-foot-nine and four hundred pounds, GOON is a one-man gore-machine of the Wrestling Conference. Police captain Philip Straker isn't a wrestling fan. The bodies pile up like dirty laundry: sex-obsessed tramps used as playthings by some unspeakable creature. Straker is determined to solve the rash of rape and mutilation murders with trimmings that beggar description. Reporter Melinda Pierce will do anything to find out, by offering herself up in order to infiltrate the arcane and lust-drenched warrens of backstage wrestling. This human juggernaut, this masked rack of guts, muscle, and mayhem... Is Goon just a wrestler gone insane? Or is he something hideously worse? "A raunchy riot of wraslin', ringrats, and no-holds-barred-sex. A must for hardcore fans of over-the-top action, and outrageous thrills." -Lucy Taylor. Seven Pages of Artwork by noted artist Micah Hayes. Original Cover Art by Erik Wilson. Our edition completely re-typeset and the author's preferred edition.
