From the cover: “A monstrous mantle of grey-black slime with an insatiable appetite; a gigantic hairless caterpillar exuding an odour of corruption and decay; a purple patch of vapour with a white projection like a vulture’s beak; a hideous creature with a neck seventy feet long and a death’s-head on its breast… these are just some of the horrors gathered together in this monster anthology.

Vampires, Werewolves, Glantokians, the Big Colugo, a mechanical murdering monster, and the ghastly Outsider — from whom everyone flees in terror make up this galaxy of horrors.

Many well-known masters of the horror story and the supernatural are represented here: H. P. Lovecraft; Arthur Conan Doyle; H. G. Wells; Ambrose Bierce; Ray Bradbury; Eric Frank Russell; Edgar Allan Poe; E. F. Benson; Saki.

Just sit back and let your flesh creep…”
