Horror Takes Its Time

Looking for a thoughtful fright? Or perhaps a frightful thought? Packed with stories selected by one of today’s leading esoteric scholars, this book will do more than make your toes curl and your skin crawl. These tales reveal hidden truths, inspire forbidden pursuits, and divulge the secrets of magical initiation in the guise of fiction. Covering topics from rituals to hauntings to Satanism, this oneofakind volume includes selections from:

  • Aleister Crowley
  • Ambrose Bierce
  • Arthur Machen
  • Edgar Allan Poe
  • Robert W. Chambers
  • Ralph Adams Cram
  • H.P. Lovecraft
  • Dion Fortune
  • Sir Edward George BulwerLytton
  • Bram Stoker

As DuQuette writes in his introduction, horror takes its time. It creeps in, seeps in, and lingers. These stories will take you hours to read, but they will stay with you, biting at your heels from the shadows, eternally. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…
