Must Read Stories
Below is some highlights of the stories I read in this offering There is always something new or unusual to discover in these Megapack collections, and this mummy-themed volume is no exception. Below is some highlights of the stories I read in this offering: "The Story of Baelbrow" is part of a collection of horror mysteries featuring the popular Victorian character Flaxman Row, who is considered in entertainment to be the first "paranormal detective.
It's another short and creepy tale that certainly earns the moniker of "weird. She does a competent job, and though everything that transpires in the story is a bit predictable to most seasoned horror readers, it nonetheless is entertaining. He always loved the exotic folklore of far away lands, especially Japan, but here he focuses on ancient Egypt with a twisted tale of a magic book that imprisons souls in a kind of half-living purgatory or shadow land. It reads like a classic bit of Edith Hamilton mythology or an Old Testament story, so may be a bit dry for some readers not used to this tradition, though certainly it will not be perceived as dull.
It is one of the most bizarre stories most folks will ever read. It is an eerie Victorian chiller that contains the most core elements familiar to fans of the original Universal monster film "The Mummy. The English adaptation is a very basic ghost story reminiscent of M. James, where the titular object is responsible for one gooseflesh-raising scene to make the reader afraid of what's behind the curtain or hiding in the closet.
The French version is more elaborate and farcical, with no real scares, but which is entertaining in its own right. If you've ever read the modern horror classic "The Ruins," you might appreciate the influence of this early story on certain more memorable parts of that tale. It is definitely creepy, though it throws out all the mystery that had been built up with a tidy explanation at the end. It's pretty silly and forgettable.
The latter tale is ultimately a more sober one about the grief and loss experienced by a sensitive year-old boy, and the former is a scathing social commentary that is quite clever and genuinely funny. Jun 26, Neil Davies rated it really liked it. Mixed bag of short stories all related some very tenuously to Mummies. Most of them are old which I like and of a generally high standard.
I only gave up on one, because it went into so much detail about every room, every object, that in the end I got bored.
