‘And behind him, like a misshapen black frog, bounded the Thing, its red
tongue lolling out of its gash of a mouth, its diminutive blubbery lips
drawn back in a murderous snarl…’
Let Henry S. Whitehead take you into the mysterious and macabre world of
voodoo where beasts invade the mind of man and where lives of the
living are racked by the spirits of the dead. In this collection of rare
and out of print stories you will encounter the curses of the great
Guinea-Snake, the Sheen, the weredog whose very touch means certain
death, the curious tale of the ‘magicked’ mirror, and fiendish manikins
who make life a living hell. Included in this festival of shivering fear
is the remarkable narrative ‘Williamson’ which every editor who read
the story shied away from publishing.
With deceptive simplicity and chilling realism, Whitehead’s Voodoo Tales are amongst the most frightening ever written.
