TALES FROM UNDERWOOD

For the audience possibly jaded by the plethora of SF, this is a collection, from 1927 on, of weird, terrifying and always ingenious tales. Not high in the literary scale, but way up on the originality angle, their range is wide, from sheer horror, to fantasy, from psychiatric nightmares to worlds of the future. There is always intelligence and an applied logic behind them, and often a touch of the satiric. Although the stories are uneven, none are without interest for anyone wanting some yarns a la Edgar Allen Poe.
