STRANGE TALES. [Smithville, Texas: Published Runa-Raven Press, 2000.]. Octavo, printed wrappers. First edition. Collects ten of the many weird tales written by Ewers in the first decades of the twentieth century and published in his native Germany. The selections in the present volume are the work of various translators, including, in three cases, Ewers himself. With a 22-page introduction by Stephen E. Flowers, largely biographical in scope, and a two-page foreword by Don Webb. Although three of Ewers' novels were translated into English between 1927 and 1934 and became well-known to connoisseurs of the weird, his short stories have remained largely unavailable to Anglophone readers. Other than BLOOD (1930), which contained just three stories, this is, to our knowledge, the first extensive offering in English of this facet of his work. A fine copy. (#161327).
