WHEN THE BATMAN THIRSTS and Other Stories

 

The Weird Tales of Frederick C. Davis

 

Introduced by John Pelan

 

Dancing Tuatara Press #35

 

 Frederick C. Davis, as recounted in John Pelan's introduction, was an expert at delivering the lead story for pulp magazines. The lead story had to be a little longer and stronger than the rest of the stories and Davis filled the bill admirably. These eight weird menace tales will have you doubting your own sanity.
