Description
 
David Stuart Davies (ed) (in). This is a unique & fascinating collection of early mummy stories that helped to establish the chilling concept of the Dead returning to life as a potent sub-genre of horror fiction. The main feature on the mummy bill, “The Jewel of the Seven Stars” by Bram Stoker, is generally regarded as his best work after “Dracula.” A weird mix of adventure, the supernatural & science fiction is found in Jane Webb’s “The Mummy,” a tale written in 1827 but set in 2126. “Some Words with a Mummy” is by the great horror writer Edgar Allan Poe. Arthur Conan Doyle’s “The Ring of Thoth” is the classic mummy tale & was the basis for the 1932 movie ‘“The Mummy” starring Boris Karloff &, indeed, for most mummy films ever since. “Lot 249,” another Doyle chiller, completes this collection.
