Fettered and Other Tales of Terror by Greye La Spina
Although she’s mostly forgotten now, in the heyday of the pulps, Greye La Spina was more successful than H.P. Lovecraft, with more than one hundred stories and serial novels published in magazines such as Weird Tales and The Thrill Book. Her reputation is on the rise, though, with her inclusion in several anthologies released in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Weird Tales. This volume is the single largest collection devoted to this unjustly neglected queen of pulp horror, containing three short stories, a novella, and a serial novel published in her first decade as a writer.
“There has not been another Greye La Spina before or since she picked up her pen. Within these pages is the work of an absolute master of weird and horror fiction, reprinted in an absolutely beautiful edition, including her masterpiece ‘The Wolf of the Steppes.’ La Spina’s writing is sharp and imaginative, tugging on the harshest corners of the imagination. If you’ve missed Greye La Spina, now is your chance to correct it.” -Zachary Rosenberg, author of Hungers as Old as This Land and The Long Shalom
