Charles Beaumont was a genius . . . and one hell of a storyteller.
Published in 1957, THE HUNGER, AND OTHER STORIES was the first collection of Charles Beaumont, the beloved, prolific writer known for his strange and scary tales. The N.Y. Herald Tribune called it “Extraordinary … gives Mr. Beaumont undeniable stature as an artist” and the Chicago Tribune called it “A memorable first book of fiction, one which belongs on any shelf of the best contemporary weird tales.”
Ranging in tone from the chilling gothic horror of “Miss Gentilbelle,” where an insane mother dresses her son up as a girl and slaughters his pets, to deliciously dark humor in tales like “Open House” and “The Infernal Bouillabaisse,” where murderers’ plans go disastrously awry, these seventeen stories demonstrate Beaumont’s remarkable talent and versatility. Narrated by award-winning voices, Paul Boehmer, Gabrielle de Cuir, and Stefan Rudnicki, this is a collection not to be missed.
