On the island of Ponape in the South Pacific, the cold light of a full moon washes over the crumbling ruins of an ancient, vanished civilization. Unleashed from the depths is the Dweller, a glittering, enigmatic force of monstrous terror and radiant beauty that stalks the South Pacific, claiming all in its path. An international expedition led by American Walter Goodwin races to save those who have fallen victim to the Dweller. The dark mystery behind the malevolent force is Muria, a forgotten, mythic world deep within the earth that is home to a legendary people intent on reclaiming what was theirs long ago. This commemorative edition of The Moon Pool features an introduction by Robert Silverberg

Burn, Witch, Burn! is a classic fantasy/horror and mystery novel by A. Merritt. Originally published as a magazine serial in 1924, and subtitled The Mystery of the Death Dolls - Was it Black Magic? It soon appeared as a book and by 1936 was used as a basis for the 1936 film The Devil Doll, directed by Tod Browning. Known for his science fiction here A. Merritt explores the world of supernatural horror. Dr. Lowell is a neurologist specializing in abnormal psychology. He is investigating a series of horrible deaths in New York. Then he meets Madame Mandilip, a doll shop owner, and her dolls from hell. “The man in the hospital room died a terrible death, slowly and in agony. His eyes were open, and on his face was an extraordinary expression of torror, a fear mixed with horror. There was nothing all the resources of medical science could do for him, not even diagnose his disease. There was no wound, nomarkn, nothing – except little globes of phosphorescence in his blood. And suddenly, at the last moment, a low chuckling sound came from his throat, inhuman, the laughter of a devil. And he was dead, dead with the face of a grinning, triumphant fiend - all humanity wiped from it.”
