THE SCARECROW AND OTHER STORIES G.Ranger Wormser LIMITED/NUMBERED

Seattle, Midnight House; 2001. Fine in fine dj. 1st hardcover edition. Gwendolyn Wormser's stories have languished in an undeserved obscurity for many years, with the single reprinting of any of her tales being in David Hartwell's massive paperback anthology BODIES OF THE DEAD (1997), which included "The Scarecrow". This present volume from Midnight House publication should remedy this deficiency, and make her writings available to those who will appreciate her introspective type of psychological horror. This collection is expanded from the original edition of THE SCARECROW and includes five additional tales, making this book the complete repository of G. Ranger's Wormser's weird and supernatural fiction. Contents: Introduction by Douglas Anderson. STORIES: "The Scarecrow", "Mutter Schwengel", "Haunted", "Flowers", "The Shadow", "The Effigy", "The Faith", "Yellow", "China-Ching", "The Wood of Living Trees", "Before the Dawn", "The Stillness". ADDITIONAL STORIES: "The Sun- Seeker", "Spring", "Tumanoff", "Devil's Leap", "Abraham Goode". Limited to 450 numbered copies. Illustrated by Allen Koszowski.
