Robbins, Tod: Bizarre (short stories). v1. 09 Sep 2023

Short stories in varied moods investigate the mysterious and the macabre.

Some have a humorous tone as they describe fantastical events (“Green Bottle”, “A Bit of a Banshee”, “Son of Shaemas O’Shea”), while others will take you into some very dark places indeed (“Spurs”; “Silent, White and Beautiful”).

================
Clarence Aaron Robbins (25 June 1888 – May 10, 1949), billed as C. A. Robbins and better known as Tod Robbins, was an American author of horror and mystery fiction, particularly novels and short story collections. Writing for mainstream pulp magazines, he specialized in horror fiction dealing with themes of madness and cruelty. His work often contains bizarre and frightening plots, sometimes influenced by writers like Oscar Wilde and Robert W. Chambers. His novel The Unholy Three (1917), about side-show performers on a crime spree, was twice adapted for the screen, starring Lon Chaney both times. His short story “Spurs” was the basis for the 1932 cult film Freaks.

“…good pulp fiction, with a note of whimsy and sophistication that is unusual in the form.” —E. F. Bleiler

================
