This extremely late edition of FF features Medusa by E.H. Visiak



Originally published in 1929, this surreal work of high seas horror is unrepentently dark, suggesting that we are beyond hope of redemption when confronted with genuine evil, for that evil feeds upon the evil within ourselves.

Trivia Tidbits: Visiak, though largely forgotten, is best remembered as an authority on John Milton.
This book was chosen by none other than Karl Edward Wagner as his selection for Horror: 100 Best Books.
