Let’s keep the book covers PG, please. There are other places to share the “naughty” ones.

I owned this paperback many many years ago. It's frighteningly accurate if you know the title story of the collection.



Featured Story:
Night of the Wind - (Fantasy) A mysterious traveller, a strange storm, a chaotic night for a small town.

Other works:
Spooky People - (Poetry) A playful verse for Hallowe'en.
On Seeing the Light (Re)born - (Poetry) A reflection on seeing the sun rise while on vacation
Voice of Ice - (Horror) A powerful winter storm leads a professor to a disturbing discovery

Panther's UK paperbacks of American fantasy writer Clark Ashton Smith had incredible covers. Still have them on my book shelf three decades after I collected them from various used bookshops.
