Horrible Imaginings

First published in 2004 by Midnight House as a Hardback

Horrible Imaginings is another fine selection of rare tales (limited to 500 numbered copies), edited by John Pelan (and a shout out to me in the front – yay!)

“This is the third of a series of volumes dedicated to preserving all of Fritz Leiber’s weird and macabre tales under the Midnight House imprint. Horrible Imaginings assembles stories from sources ranging from 1940s issues of Weird Tales to rare fanzines like Amra and Whispers. As a special treat, this book includes a “lost” story, “Skinny’s Wonderful”, apparently written for Esquire or Playboy which was recently discovered in the author’s papers. Most of the stories gathered here are making their first appearance in book form or have been virtually unobtainable for many years. Fritz Leiber was the winner of every major award for science fiction, fantasy, and horror during his career. While many of his novels remain in print, much of his great short fiction has been virtually unobtainable for decades.” read more
