Stevens, Francis: Nightmare! .v1. 10 June 07
Another novel from the pioneering "First Woman of Fantasy."
Here's some info:
"….First published in 1916, this debut novel of terror launched the career of Francis Stevens (aka Gertrude Barrows Bennett), the grandmistress of horror, author of Possessed! Citadel of Fear, Claimed! , and other classic novels of terror…When a tourist from New York sails on the ill-fated liner Lusitania, he wakens from a night's sleep to find himself struggling in the seas off an uncharted island. There, he encounters man-eating plants, spiders as big as a dining-room table, bears as large as elephants, and bats of similar proportions. He also finds himself caught in a rivalry between two dangerous groups competing to extract a rare substance found only on the island which turns lead into gold…."
I hope you enjoy....check out the two major illustrations.
