    I'm pretty sure the description which is from the back of the book is false advertising. ------------------------- I could only make it through 2 stories: ~ The Mysterious Card by Cleveland Moffett - 2* - It was readable but had a stupid ending // I came across this later: "The story ends without a clear resolution, leaving the readers to ponder the mystery. The author revealed the solution to this puzzle in the sequel, "The Mysterious Card Unveiled," which he didn't publish until the next year, to I'm pretty sure the description which is from the back of the book is false advertising. ------------------------- I could only make it through 2 stories: ~ The Mysterious Card by Cleveland Moffett - 2* - It was readable but had a stupid ending // I came across this later: "The story ends without a clear resolution, leaving the readers to ponder the mystery. The author revealed the solution to this puzzle in the sequel, "The Mysterious Card Unveiled," which he didn't publish until the next year, to keep his readers in suspense " Well no wonder I thought it was a stupid ending. ~ "Man Overboard!" by Winston S. Churchill - 2* ------------------------- The oldest story in the book is from 1896, newest 1933 (2nd newest 1908). I think that was part of my problem. I'm not a strong enough reader to get through old fashioned dialect and enjoy myself. I am grateful for this book to help me remove some turn of the century books from my TO READ list.

    This is an interesting collection that spans the gamut from the rather familiar HP Lovecraft to the "Huh" moment of reading short fiction from Winston Churchill(!) to some stories like "A Study of Destiny" by Count Leigh de Hamong (about an archaeological expedition that gets very horrific as the tale progresses) to "The Messenger" by Robert W. Chambers that would do well in any good horror anthology series. I really liked "The Monster-Maker" by W.C. Morrow, in which the protagonist does unspeak This is an interesting collection that spans the gamut from the rather familiar HP Lovecraft to the "Huh" moment of reading short fiction from Winston Churchill(!) to some stories like "A Study of Destiny" by Count Leigh de Hamong (about an archaeological expedition that gets very horrific as the tale progresses) to "The Messenger" by Robert W.

These were a lot of fun to read, and just as with finding old pre-code comics that are hidden gems, anytime I see an anthology like this, I grab it. Good stuff.

    I recently purchased a used paperback of this book from Myopic Books, a used bookstore the size of a two story house. This book is a collection of short stories in fantasy, horror, and science fiction that were published--roughly--between 1890 and 1933, and which the editors consider to be "forgotton gems". The stories, though, were a mixed bag for me. "A Study of Destiny" by Count Leigh de Hamong, probably published in the 1890s, is a horror story set during an archaeology expedition in Egypt. T I recently purchased a used paperback of this book from Myopic Books, a used bookstore the size of a two story house. This book is a collection of short stories in fantasy, horror, and science fiction that were published--roughly--between 1890 and 1933, and which the editors consider to be "forgotton gems". The stories, though, were a mixed bag for me. "A Study of Destiny" by Count Leigh de Hamong, probably published in the 1890s, is a horror story set during an archaeology expedition in Egypt. This long story goes in various directions and I found it to be a slog. "Man Overboard" is a three page story written by Winston Churchill when he was a young man. Yes, that Winston Churchill. A man falls overboard from a ship; the others on the ship don't hear his pleas for help and his attempt to swim back to the ship fails. The story has a 'twist' ending. "The Messenger" is a supernatural horror story by Robert W. Chambers. Not a _The King in Yellow_ story, but it had a cleaner prose style than the stories in the _King in Yellow_ cycle. The best story in this book is "Jungli Admi" by Sarath Kumar Ghosh. Now this is a find! It is a gripping adventure story about a man captured by a Raja and forced to fight a wild beast. According to the editors, Ghosh published a book in 1904 entitled _1,001 Indian Nights._ The title alone of that book gives a good idea as to what it is about, and I plan to read it. "The Mysterious Card" by Cleveland Moffett sustained my attention throughout. An attractive woman places a card on a table where a man is seated. This man picks up the card, but, since its written in French, he doesn't know what it says. He shows this card to his wife, friend, and authorities and they never tell him what it says, and this card also ruins the man's relationship with everyone who sees it. I was not satisfied with the ending of this story though. "The Black Statue" is a science fiction/horror story about a mad scientist who turns people in a statue. This book also has the story "The Dreams of the Witch-house" by H.P. Lovecraft.
