Blurb: “Hard to find vintage paperback! Enjoy this scarce copy of a famous collection of short fiction that led to the movie "Sardonicus"! This includes the novella, Sardonicus, and 16 other short stories. Sardonicus is a gothic short story that was printed in Playboy Magazine back in 1961. True to the infamous gothic genre, this short story takes place in a dark castle and tells the story of a doctor who is held by his will to fix the deformed face of the master Sardonicus. Needless to say, it’s a creepy premise!”

Fun fact:Stephen King recommended book. Noted as "important to the genre we have been discussing" from Danse Macabre, published in 1981.”
