Comments & Further Information

This is a limited edition trade paperback (100 copies only) with a stated “First Edition” and a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing.   Book #36 of 100.   Introduction by Richard’ s son, Franklyn Searight, and a cover illustration by World Fantasy Artist award winner, Allen Koszowski (who also provided the internal illustrations).  Unread.

This is the third volume of a three part series. The previous two volumes were “The Brain in the Jar and Others” (Necronomicon Press 1992) and “The Sealed Casket and Others” (Necronomicon Press 1996).

Richard F Searight wrote much of his fictional and poetical work during the 1930s at a time when he was honoured to have Howard Phillips Lovecraft as his epistolary friend. Lovecraft read many of the drafts and offered a critique of Searight’s work. HPL also suggested that Richard should get in touch with another contemporary, Clark Ashton Smith, whom Lovecraft thought would be in a better position to advise on Richard’s tales which were more Science Fiction than Horror.
