Fenham Publishing has announced the release of C. M. Eddy, Jr.’s second collection of short stories, The Loved Dead and Other Tales. This second collection of C.M. Eddy, Jr.’s thirteen short stories showcases his Weird Tales creations together with a variety of other tales from that era. Taken from the original handwritten manuscripts, the thirteen tales in this volume run the gamut from the title story of a person’s dark descent into unspeakable acts, to tales of mad scientists, neanderthals, phantoms, and ancient curses. Many are reprinted together here for the first time since they graced the pages of the pulp magazines back in the early part of the 20th century.
