Demons of the Night

4.6/5 rating (8 votes)

Best known as a prolific contributor to Weird Tales, Seabury Quinn created an impressive body of literature prior to and parallel with his first sales to that magazine. Demons of the Night spotlights those early works, including his first published article, his first fiction sale, and stories from his extremely rare Washington Nights' Entertainment and Problems of Professor Forrester series.

Three of the works in this volume were previously unknown, and five have never been reprinted in their entirety anywhere since the original magazine appearances, as long as nine decades ago.
