Monsters

From the depths of the sea…

From the secret places of the universe

MONSTERS

A HOST OF HIDEOUS THINGS – writhing… crawling…some scaled, some slimy, some finned… fashioned from the darkest places of man’s imagination…shaped grotesquely in nightmare forms… and some so horrifying they have no shape at all…

MONSTERS

Corgi Books 1970.

Deformed..

Evil…

Bent on horror and destruction…

Rearing up on horny, gleaming legs…

Growing from the floor in a bulbous, slobbering mass…

Grimacing from a tiger shark’s face…

MONSTERS – Eight tales of terror by A.E Van Vogt.

What amazing artwork – I can only wish my aura is as spectacularly colourful as this cover model’s.

Happy Birthday Poe

Posted on

This superb selection from an unrivalled classic brilliantly reflects the two-sided genius of…

Edgar Allan Poe.

The nightmare terror of
The Pit and the Pendulum

The gruesome horror of
The Fall of the House of Usher

The devilish logic of
The Murders in the Rue Morgue

The fiendish mystery of
The Purloined Letter etc.

These Flawless stories are the work of a master who has chilled the spines of readers for over a century.

First published 1960 by Pan Books Ltd. Tenth printing 1965.

House of Secrets…

Posted on

Welcome to House of Secrets, an online depository for some of the bad, the beautiful and the downright  bizarre books I’ve been lucky enough to stumble upon over the years (& years!)I’ve spent rummaging around in the darker corners of arcane bookshops and specialist book fairs.

Based in Brighton, East Sussex,  I buy, sell and collect vintage pulp fiction from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s – in particular horror and gothic romance. I also create unique gifts with a gothic twist and will be posting some photographs soon. Check out the Events page for details of Markets etc where I will be trading.

Any questions, feedback or if you just want to say hi, please email me via the contacts page.

Cheers!

Sara.
