Guy N. Smith – Abomination (Arrow, 1977)

Blurb

Something diabolical hangs over a small hill village on the Welsh borders.
A new miracle pesticide has gone terribly wrong… and now drifts over the neighbouring farmland in a deadly cloud.
Homesteads and fields, church and schoolroom – all are prey to a seething, slithering, flying, creeping abomination from hell.

Stripping the warm flesh from your bones…

Blurb:
Horrific scenes of the supernatural: vivid climax in the terror of a Black Mass: The Haunting of Toby Jugg is a classic of occult fiction.

“I knew in another second it would be too late to escape. Something outside all human experience – something beyond belief, unholy, loathsome, terrifying – was in the very act of launching itself upon me where I knelt. My will broke ….

Cover illustration: Robert Graham

Blurb:
‘Another masterpiece of Black Magic.’

The Satanist tells how a young man and woman voluntarily gave themselves to the appalling blasphemies and degraded sexual rites of a Satanic circle By these foul means the Satanist attained his all-pervading power, both occult and political. This was the price they had to pay to avenge a callous and brutal murder….

`There can be no doubt about Dennis Wheatley’s ability to tell a tale that grips the reader.’ – WOLVERHAMPTON EXPRESS AND STAR

Blurb:
Toby Jugg was a young millionaire, crippled in the Battle of Britain. In his weakened state he agreed to go to a house in Wales to recover his health and vigour. Too late he realized that he was a prisoner in the hands of a guardian who planned to gain control of his fortune by driving him steadily mad. As Toby’s diary gradually unfolds the hideous plot in which he is entangled, his guardian is revealed as a monstrous practitioner of the Black Arts. The battle that develops between Toby and the powers of evil is a triumph of imaginative story-telling. Horrific scenes of the supernatural, ever-mounting tension, and a terrific climax in the celebration of a Black Mass are outstanding elements in a novel of quite exceptional drama and excitement.

Dennis Wheatley – Uncharted Seas

Posted by demonik on November 14, 2011

Dennis Wheatley – Uncharted Seas  (Arrow, 1960)

illustration: S. R. Boldero

Blurb:
In the face of an Atlantic hurricane, two girls and a boatload of men, of all races and colours, pit their strength against the appalling rigours of the open sea. Tension mounts; so the desirable Synolda is forced into the arms of a man who holds her past as his ace. Only blood can satisfy the hatred in her lover’s eyes.
There is mutiny and murder before the unrelenting Sargasso weed entombs them all. But suddenly land is sighted — land unmarked on the chart, concealing unimaginabli horrors. Killer crabs are tame beside the lusts of the creatures that hop across the stinking weed. Only the two girls, Unity and Synolda, can tell their menfolk the meaning of the iniquitous Marriage House.

The ending of this ship-wreck saga is one that only the imagination of Dennis Wheatley could conjure.

Blurb
Through one of the walls of the hall, accompanied by a cold wind, came a cavalcade of grey, shadowy riders on grey shadowy horses. At their head rode a figure taller and more terrifying than any of the others. Although Blake could see but little of the face below the hood which he wore low over his forehead, he instinctively felt that the leader of that ghostly host was the Spirit of The Mighty Lovonan Wizard, Shadna Rana.
