Описание: Я не знаю в русском языке подходящего термина для Weird Fiction (Яндекс дает перевод "странное чтиво", что не так уж и плохо ). Это фэнтези, хоррор, мистика, причем примерно в стиле журнала Weird Tales. Эта антология устроена так, что каждый автор получает свой том. Серия пока продолжается ...

“Miss Twisp!” No answer. Malcolm G. Retts, editor of Ghoulish Shockers (Read ’Em and Creep), put his long forefinger down on the desk buzzer and held it there. In a moment an emaciated female with stringy hair and large eyes fluttered in, pad and pencil clutched in her elfin hands. “Where have you been, Miss Twisp? Out seeing a double feature twice?” Lila Twisp laughed carefully. But there was no humor in it. She had the appearance of one who has wandered by mistake into a horror museum, and can’t find the way out. “No, sir. There’s a strange man—” “No doubt!” snapped her gaunt-faced employer sarcastically. “Meanwhile I must shout myself hoarse! Well, never mind about that—have you found a suitable autobiographer for our new feature ‘Famous Fiends?’” Miss Twisp gulped. “Well, have you?” “I don’t think—” “That’s just the trouble! You never think! Well, we mustn’t expect the impossible, must we, Miss Twisp!” Retts scraped the glass on his desk with his nails, and made Miss Twisp writhe. “Do you realize that we’re losing thousands of readers every month! I don’t know what’s come over this country. Did you get any answers on that questionnaire business we sent out?” Miss Twisp nodded scaredly. “Hundreds, Mr. Retts! They all say the same things—the newspapers, true-life periodicals, and newsreels are cornering the horror market. The readers say they find our Shockers mild by comparison!” “Do they indeed!” growled the editor. “Is that all they say?” “There’s one more thing,” Miss Twisp began meekly. Her eyes roved to the serried ranks of books and bound magazines that decorated three sides of the ornate office—to one corner, especially. Retts noticed her fearful glance at the corner shelf. “Ah! The ‘Bluebeard’ murders!” “Yes, sir. The papers are full of it. Last Tuesday it even pushed the Russian campaign back to page three.” “I see.” Malcolm Retts sighed, and cast a fond lingering glance at his favorite collection. . . .
Originally published in Strange Tales of Mystery and Terror, November 1931.
My house-man, Stephen Penn, who presided over the staff of my residence in St Thomas, was not, strictly speaking, a native of that city. Penn came from the neighboring island of St Jan. It is one of the ancient West Indian names, although there remain in the islands nowadays no Caucasians to bear that honorable cognomen. Stephen’s travels, however, had not been limited to the crossing from St Jan—which, incidentally, is the authentic scene of R. L Stevenson’s Treasure Island—which lies little more than a rowboat’s journey away from the capital of the Virgin Islands. Stephen had been “down the Islands,” which means that he had been actually as far from home as Trinidad, or perhaps, British Guiana, down through the great sweep of former mountaintops, submerged by some vast, cataclysmic, prehistoric inundation and named the Bow of Ulysses by some fanciful, antique geographer. That odyssey of humble Stephen Penn had taken place because of his love for ships. He had had various jobs afloat and his exact knowledge of the house-man’s art had been learned under various man-driving ship’s stewards. During this preliminary training for his life’s work, Stephen had made many acquaintances. One of these, an upstanding, slim, parchment-colored Negro of thirty or so, was Brutus Hellman. Brutus, like Stephen, had settled down in St. Thomas as a house-man. It was, in fact, Stephen who had talked him into leaving his native British Antigua, to try his luck in our American Virgin Islands. Stephen had secured for him his first job in St. Thomas, in the household of a naval officer. For this friend of his youthful days, Stephen continued to feel a certain sense of responsibility; because, when Brutus happened to be abruptly thrown out of employment by the sudden illness and removal by the Naval Department of his employer in the middle of the winter season in St. Thomas, Stephen came to me and requested that his friend Brutus be allowed to come to me “on board-wages” until he was able to secure another place. . . .
