STORIES OF DARKNESS AND DREAD. Sauk City, Wisconsin: Arkham House, 1973. Octavo, cloth. First edition. Signed by Brennan. 4138 copies printed. Collects seventeen short stories and a prose poem. "Brennan's forte was the small-town horror story ... New England towns where characters are swallowed up by the gulf separating an antiquarian past from a soullessly modernized present. Many of the stories presciently anticipate the dark fantasy movement of the 1970s through the horrors the arise out of fears and concerns of ordinary lives." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-50. Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-50. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 4-46. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#162707).
