Frank Belknap Long comes under freuent criticism for being a bad writer There is certainly something bizarre about his prose style and dialogue but I think it actually adds a cumulatively disuieting and weird atmosphere to this book Like most Arkham collections the best tales here are culled from Weird Tales magazine and the weakest are the science fiction stories There is something genuinely unsettling even horrific about these stories and Long s disjointed writing style brings a nightmarish uality to the best tales here including The Dark Beasts The Space Eaters Second Night Out The Peeper and the title story Hannes Bok s illustration for the cover is perfect and despite possibly even because of Long s strange style I would not hesitate to recommend this book to fans of weird fiction Seducida (Esclava victoriana, in 1946 and was the author's third bo.

Frank Belknap Long The Hounds of Tindalos Sauk City Arkham House 1946 First editi. Being paid by the word some pulp writers become overly descriptive or write in convoluted prose both of which can damage an extremely good plot Fortunately Frank Belknap Long at least for this collection of stories doesn t fall into either category These would be the best of his previous published work in magazines like Weird Tales Marvel Tales and Unknown Worlds The tale from which this book gets its name and The Space Eaters were the primary reason that I purchased the book for but the remainder are not only good but in some cases better Additionally Long gives insight to the stories origin the publishing world at this time and many of the people involved in that medium at that time Overall a well balanced book over all from the selection of stories to the authors insights
