The terror that lurked and laughed in the night, the Thing that screamed in the crypt, the baby with webbed hands, the monster that came out of the mirror – these are among the unpublished stories by Edith Olivier, Douglas Newton, Elliott O’Donnell, Charles Lloyd, and other brilliant writers.
Charles Lloyd – Old Mrs. Strathers: Paralysed by a stroke, old Mrs. Strathers is powerless to intervene on her doting son’s behalf when his faithless wife, Molly, sets about poisoning him. As Ronnie lies dying, with a supreme effort she raises herself from her chair, and … pitches headfirst into the fireplace ….
Edith Olivier – Dead Men’s Bones: When Southover church was under construction, workmen excavated a pile of bones indicating that the site had once been a burial ground. The remains are stored away en masse. A young girl is given the job of locking the vault for the night and walks in on a huge commotion. The bones are trying to sort themselves out.
… and that’s all I can tell you about Quakes at this moment in time.
