At Kirkus: The Cosmic Horror of William Sloane

Over the last couple of  years, I’ve gotten more and more interested in the pulp era of science fiction, particularly of the science-horror genre, dominated by the likes of H.P. Lovecraft and his circle of fellow authors. Recently, the New York Review of Books sent me a copy of a very interesting looking omnibus, The Rim of Morning, by William M. Sloane, introducing me to a new author of cosmic horror.

Looking into his background, he seems to have had a fairly minor role in the pulp world, but wrote two very interesting novels, now collected in this book. If Stephen King’s raving about it, he did something right.

Read The Cosmic Horror Of William M. Sloane over on Kirkus Reviews.
