Reading Rumble 7

Fantasy and horror author Tanith Lee springboards into the ring.


Amazon shop


The Nightmare's Tale by Tanith Lee
Women of Darkness II 1990

Collected in Tanith Lee A-Z, from Amazon

A man's object of revenge dies too soon, but not too late for voodoo-esque magic.

Drive-In Date by Joe R. Lansdale
Cemetery Dance, Winter 1991

Two dirt bags an their drive-in "date". The first of his splatterpunk dark comedy pieces in the Rumble.

The Wood of the Dead by Algernon Blackwood
The Empty House and Other Ghost Stories, 1906

"What happened to that old man I was talking to?"

"There's no old man here. Might have been the ghost that portends death in the village. Excuse me, I'm off to live a happy and full life."

Lee and Blackwood go over the ropes.
