Gregory, John Pelan (Introduction). Gavin L. O'Keefe (Design). I'm completely baffled by how this book could ever end up in a 'best of' list. It's a rare publication, yes - but maybe there was a reason for that?

Gregory, John Pelan (Introduction). It's a rare publication, yes - but maybe there was a reason for that? The closest I can think of it's one of those super-minor gothic novels of the early 18th century that kept re-telling the same tale, using the same characters and boring over and over again too many readers.

In twenty-one dark visions, a host of outstanding contemporary writers tap i. Family Tradition. by Edward Lee · John Pelan.

Selected as one of the thirteen best novels of supernatural horror of all-time by the late author/editor Karl Edward Wagner, Dark Sanctuary more than lives up to its legendary status. First published in 1940, this powerful novel of Lovecraftian horror takes place in a demon-haunted abbey off the Cornish coast. H.B. Gregory demonstrates a sure hand at sustaining a sense of mounting dread surprising in a first novel. The story opens with Anthony Lovell, Sr., master of the ancient abbey of Kestrel and its like-named island off the Cornish coast, raving in madness and fear over the ancient family curse that "dwells in the bowels of the abbey rock." What has caused his madness is unclear, but it is obviously linked to something seen or experienced in Kestrel's ancient crypts. Lovell's son is called back from London and, soon thereafter, John Hamilton, a free-lance journalist and friend to the younger Lovell, makes his way to Kestrel as well… Virtually unobtainable for over sixty years, the 2001 edition from Midnight House sold out quickly, leaving many aficionados of the weird tale disappointed. This new edition from Dancing Tuatara Press reprints the informative introduction by D.H. Olson from the Midnight House edition and adds a new introduction by John Pelan and an interview conducted with the author shortly after his ninety-second birthday.
