The Thrills of Horror! Romantic Tales of the Eerie and Occult! You’ll find them in Spicy Mystery—stories of red-blooded men and lovely girls in dangerous situations, in an atmosphere of chills and thrills. Real life is never so tense and dramatic as when a girl is in peril—or as when a siren as deadly as she is beautiful sets her snare for a man….
Are you bored of typical weird menace plots, many of which crept into Spicy Mystery? Then sample these tales which break out of that tired formula where every ending is happy, and the only challenge is guessing which minor character gets exposed as the villain in a rubber monster suit and demon mask!
The Best of Spicy Mystery, Volume 1 contains 11 classic stories by the masters of the genre, complete, uncut, and with the original illustrations. It also includes an all-new introduction by editor Alfred Jan, one of the leading experts on the series.
