The Edge of Running Water...


Not my own scan, but I couldn't resist re-posting the spectacularly sinister cover for this 1967 edition of Willian Sloane's 1939 novel, via Too Much Horror Fiction.

Definite 'Blood on Satan's Claw' vibes.

(Some great galleries of other gothic horror paperback artwork available on the same blog here and here.)

  1. Sadly, the book's content isn't at all like the terrific cover art. The book is actually about a scientist who creates a machine powered by corpses and a medium to contact his dead wife. It's pretty good and was the basis for a nifty Boris Karloff film called The Devil Commands.
