Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Chris Jarocha-Ernst on April 30, 2010
I do not own this, so the rating is based on familiarity with the stories and with other Wildside Howard collections: I'm assuming these are taken from the original pulp appearances.

From [...] (Parenthetical comments categorizing the stories are mine.):

"Rattle of Bones" (Solomon Kane)
"Skulls in the Stars" (Solomon Kane)
"Skull-Face" (Kathulos of Atlantis)
"The Blood of Belshazzar" (Cormac Fitzgeoffrey)
"Blow the Chinks Down" (Sailor Steve Costigan)
"Cupid from Bear Creek" (Breckenridge Elkins)
"Graveyard Rats" (Steve Harrison)
"The Purple Heart of Erlik" (Wild Bill Clanton)
"Black Talons" (weird menace)
"Black Wind Blowing" (weird menace)
"Alleys of Darkness" (Dennis Dorgan)
"The Thing on the Roof" (Cthulhu Mythos)
