I have always maintained that after HPL, the most important/influential author published by Arkham House was Ray Bradbury: Bradbury was the founding father of the California Writer revolution of the 1950's-60's, influencing those who intentionally broke away from the HPL and more Gothic tradition of horror; Charles Beaumont, George Clayton Johnson, William F. Nolan, Dennis Etchison, Harlan Ellison, and others who brought horror "into the light." DARK CARNIVAL collects twenty-seven of Bradbury's best early horrors, primarily from WEIRD TALES. Bradbury was a true Master of Horror, but as time ... View more info

Dixon Smith—biographer of Carl Jacobi. "To R. Dixon Smith, to keep him from rummaging the bottom of the North Atlantic," Joseph Payne Brennan." If not rare, a very scarce book. Fine in d.j.
