With an Introduction by David Stuart Davies. "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. Includes: West India Lights Jumbee The Black Beast And many more AUTHOR: The Reverend Henry St. Clair Whitehead (1882 -1932) was an American cleric who spent part of his working life in the Virgin Islands, where he gathered material for his writing. His supernatural short stories appeared in 'Weird Tales', and other pulp magazines magazines, and he became well acquainted with H.P. Lovecraft. It was some years after his death that his stories were published as a collection, but are now highly regarded.
