Excellent covers from the novels of the late Michael Talbot, who wrote one of the more sought-after horror paperbacks of the 1980s - 1982's The Delicate Dependency - as well as these two titles, The Bog (1986) and Night Things (1988). Both were first published in hardcover by William Morrow and then put out in paperback by Jove.They're both still on my to-be-read lists...
Night Things hardcover art by Guy Kingsbury; paperback art by James Warren.
The Bog hardcover artist unknown; paperback art by Gary Ruddell.
With Grady Hendrix, I co-wrote the Stoker Award-winning PAPERBACKS FROM HELL: THE TWISTED HISTORY OF '70s AND '80s HORROR FICTION (2017) from Quirk Books. I also own a couple thousand vintage paperbacks most of which are horror but also SF, crime, & general fiction. Always adding more to the home library!
Looking for a forgotten horror novel or short story? Remember the paperback cover art but not the title or author? Send me an email at toomuchhorrorfiction[at]gmail.com describing it and if I don't know it, one of my readers might!
