    The author himself presents “The Early Long” and the not so early Long In fact this book covers Long's first 20 years as a writer and there's some brilliant stuff in there as well as some other stuff Each story is introduced at length by the author and there's also a 27 page introduction by him Some of that's interesting but damn does it

Ories by Frank Belknap Long It was released in 1946 and was the author's third bo. Frank Belknap Long comes under freuent criticism for being a bad writer There is certainly something bizarre about his prose style and dialogue but I think it actually adds a cumulatively disuieting and weird atmosphere to this book Like most Arkham collections the best tales here are culled from Weird Tales magazine and the weakest are the science fiction stories There is something genuinely unsettling even horrific about these stories and Long s disjointed writing style brings a nightmarish uality to the best tales here including The Dark Beasts The Space Eaters Second Night Out The Peeper and the title story Hannes Bok s illustration for the cover is perfect and despite possibly even because of Long s strange style I would not hesitate to recommend this book to fans of weird fiction
