This is the fourth volume in the collected works of Wellman, with stories written anywhere from 1927 to 1995. These stories all stand independent of each other, with no common protagonist like the ones in volume three. And one knows that when the protagonist is a one shot guy, he’s a lot more apt to end up dead in an unhappy ending.

As usual with any collection of stories- especially horror from the pulps- some of the stories follow a very predictable path. But others don’t-these are the real gems. Even the predictable ones make good reading- Wellman uses folklore, history and setting to enrich even the slightest tale.

All of these stories are very short, perfect for picking up and reading a couple at bedtime. ( )
