Terror Tales eBook    
Arthur J. Burks, Book 1

These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook. As a special bonus, Will Murray has written an introduction especially for this Terror Tales series of eBooks.
In 1934 a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names — the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines — weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today. Terror Tales magazine was one of the most popular. It came from Popular Publications, whose publisher Harry Steeger was inspired by the Grand Guignol theater of Paris. This breed of pulp story survived less than ten years, but in that time, they became infamous, even to this day. This ebook contains a collection of stories from the pages of Terror Tales magazine, all written by Arthur J. Burks, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

5 of 5 Some terrific tales October 17, 2017
Reviewer: L. J. Field from SHELBY TOWNSHIP, MI United States  
This book is a very nice compilation of stories that Arthur J. Burks wrote for this magazine. Surprisingly, the best story, “No Man Escapes Me”, is not very much in the weird terror category that the magazine usually produced. There are some very fine stories here, including the absolute psychotic “Keepers of the Black Tavern” and the somewhat pastoral “Through Death’s Thin Veil”.
This last mentioned story is another that escapes the confines of the stories emblematic of the magazine and offers a truly sympathetic view of the characters.
