Description: Terror! is a visual history of horror illustrations from the early gothic chapbooks and Penny Dreadfuls of the Victorian Era to classic pulp magazines of the 20th century such as Amazing Stories and Weird Tales. Pouring out from the fertile imaginations of pulp publishing’s most famous artists, these wildly imaginative, nightmarish visions brought to life characters created by a rogue's gallery of fantasy and horror writers, including Ray Bradbury, H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Bloch, Manly Wade Wellman, and Seabury Quinn. Drawn from author Peter Hainings's own extensive collection of rare magazines and publications, it's still one of the best books on the subject.
