Armchair Fiction presents paperback collections of the best in classic horror short stories. "Horror Gems, Vol. Nine, Emil Petaja & Others" features a terrific selection of shockers by some of the genre’s best authors. Watch out for sneaky stalkers, wicked Wraiths, and singing stiffs. Yes…you can forget skeletons in the closet… In this chilling collection of spooky tales, you will encounter familial demons and deadly beings who stalk their prey relentlessly! In Manly Wade Wellman’s “Song of the Slaves” and Chester Geier’s “Death’s Head”, you will find that greed is rewarded—but not in a way desirable for the covetous cads. “Give Me My Body” by Anton Reed and “The Lurker” by Rog Phillips tell of innocent women being possessed by dark entities. Can they be saved by those who love them? You will also find stark interplanetary horror when you peruse Russell Thompson’s “Terror of the Undead Corpses” and Richard Shaver’s eerie gem, “The Valley of Madness.” There are plenty more tales just like these, so make sure you’re reading with the “lights on” because this installment of Horror Gems is sure to terrify even the boldest of readers.
