The thrill-a-minute stories the writers of the original movie, The Mummy, with Boris Karloff, and its many sequels and remakes, used for research.
Fans of those films will find the origins of: the scene in which the sacred formula for eternal life is secreted in the base of a statue of Isis; as well as the scenes in which mummies are brought back to life by burning a rare Egyptian herb; where a modern woman, who is the reincarnation of an ancient Egyptian princess, begins to turn into a mummy herself; where mummies can only be truly destroyed by fire; and many others.
Your blood will run cold at such exciting tales as “In the Valley of the Sorceress” by Sax Rohmer, “The Mummy’s Foot” by Theophile Gautier, “The Nameless Mummy” by Arlton Eadie, “The Mummy of Thompson-Pratt” by C.J. Cutcliffe Hyne, “Monkeys” by E. F. Benson, and two unabridged short novels, Lot No. 249 by Arthur Conan Doyle and The Curse of Amen-Ra by Victor Rousseau.
This anthology is a must-listen for everyone who has ever loved their mummy. Includes an introduction by editor Jean Marie Stine.
