From the first, I set myself against "literature"; the story was the thing, and no amount of style could persuade me to select a story that lacked genuine, unadulterated horror. For those who wanted something high-brow there was plenty.
I didn't buy the recent reisssue. Don't think many people did sadly. I saw it in a half price book shop. When I went back next day to get it, it had shut down. I still have the severed head version of this though and I read it through again recently. Horrors in the Museum is without a doubt the books best tale for me. And Mr Lovecraft would be proud. Back to the the cover though. I always thought of it as a buried corpse in soil and mud as opposed to a severed head. And when I read Submerged the second tale in the book. I imagined this to be the corpse of the drowned woman who gets tangled in the roots. This was when I was younger I may add.
The re-issue sold reasonably well, but not as well as hoped. Hence the reason there isn't a Pan reboot...yet. But I'm still working on it. The re-issue can be found on amazon, worth getting for my introduction alone...
I have an extremely scruffy copy of the fangy cat, or I think I do, but it may have been in the big load of books I got rid of a year ago due to it being so very scruffy.
Edit: As it turns out, I don't think I still have it, although I do still have the second. Going through a bookcase I haven't looked at in some time has, however, made me realize I still have books I thought I had thrown out or had forgotten ever buying in the first place. D'oh!
