Fengriffen & other Gothic Tales by David Case
Tradepaperback – Valancourt Books – 2015 – 247 pages
More than forty-five years after his first collection was published, here is an original volume of David Case’s macabre Gothic tales that showcases the author’s remarkable psycho-sexual fiction combined with the tropes of the classic horror story.
Taking its title from the classic 1971 novella, Fengriffen & Other Gothic Tales also includes such memorable stories as ‘Anachrona’, ‘The Foreign Bride’ and his Frankenstein-inspired short novel ‘The Dead End’. With a personal Introduction from award-winning editor Stephen Jones and an exclusive Afterword by acclaimed film writer Kim Newman, in which he discusses how the title story was adapted into the crawling-hand horror movie—And Now the Screaming Starts!, this volume showcases the work of one of the genre’s finest exponents of the macabre.
