TALES OF THE DARK GOAT O' PENN'S WOODS, NIGHT EIGHT
(I’ve been going to bed unusually early this past week - I’ll do this at midnight soon - midnight eastern standard time anyway.)
I am a HUGE fan of Edward John Moreton Drax Plunkett, 18th Baron of Dunsany, but he’s not REALLY horror. Truth to tell, a lot of the stuff I’m throwing at you isn’t QUITE horror in MY book, which for me means a real break with reality as we understand it; something a little bit stronger than a weird tale. But I DO like weird tales, and if YOU do, and love playing with language, well Dunsany is right up there with Clarke Ashton Smith. Anyway, thanks once again to Project Gutenberg (U.S.), here is:

…OK, I’m repeating artists again… But I LOVE Sime, who illustrated Dunsany and WOW! Sooo… Here’s Otto Dix, I hate to throw him in as second string, he is a real master of the horrors of real life. I should track down some WWI horror stories, but I won’t do Machen’s The Bowmen (AKA The Angels of Mons), that’s just propaganda. You know what, I’m saving Dix for later. Here’s a Kay Nielsen, an artist I love who had a tough life, though none of his work is what I would call horror:
Hey, anyone know any good (free) horror stories? WWI in particular, but - whatev’s?
Just ONE more Sime:
