It’s time to send this issue of Tales From The Tomb Vol. 2 No. 5 into the empire of shades. Sleep long, grimy issue from the realm of Fass; and may demons howl thee to thy rest!The last vestiges presented here are both reprints from Igor Shop originals. Think fast! Coming at you like a rabid bat is “The Empty Coffin;” a bright, brief tale of clever revenge and true love. Much encouragement is offered in this story, presenting the fearful limbo of spirits as a place of great liberation – even miracles . . . where the lame shall float on death's gentle wings . . . where the crazy and the dead may twine in love's embrace.Or, to put it another way, Table of Contents says: ”The stink of rotting flesh choked the living in the House of Korinth. Who’s got a gas mask?”
Our next story, “Death Is No Stranger” serves as reminder: Never bite the hand that feeds – particularly if that hand has no flesh.
No. Begging will not help. Restraint must be shown no matter how great your pleasure. It’s time to let you go until next time, in which we will survey the remains of Horror Tales Vol. 2 No. 3, May 1970.
