THE STUFF OF DREAMS: THE WEIRD STORIES OF EDWARD LUCAS WHITE edited by S.T.Joshi. Miskatonic Books (imprint of Bloodletting Press).

Arcane Wisdom Press is proud to announce The Stuff Of Dreams: The Weird Stories of Edward Lucas White, collected and edited with introduction by scholar S. T. Joshi.

One of only 150 signed and numbered hardcover copies signed by the editor S. T. Joshi and acclaimed cover artist Alex McVey.

American writer Edward Lucas White (1866–1934) produced a memorable body of weird fiction in his two short story collections, The Song of the Sirens (1919) and Lukundoo and Other Stories (1927). The distinctive feature of these stories is that many of them were based on the author’s incredibly bizarre and detailed dreams. The classic story “Lukundoo” tells of a hideous curse inflicted by an African witch-doctor; “Amina” is the innovative tale of a female ghoul; “The Snout” hints loathsomely of a hybrid monster in an old manor house; and “The Song of the Sirens” tells of the latent horror behind the classic Greek myth of the half-bird, half-woman creatures known as the Sirens. These are only some of the potently macabre tales in this book, which shows Edward Lucas White to be a master of the weird tale whose work has been unavailable for too long.
