Robert Ervin Howard (January 22, 1906-June 11, 1936) was an American author renowned for his weird tales and horror fiction.
The Fearsome Touch of Death is the story of a man who is holding an overnight vigil with a stranger's corpse in a remote house. In the dark of the remote house, he begins to hear and see strange sounds and visions. Or is he imagining things?
Could there actually be something behind him in the dark? Is the dead man still on the bed, or is he up and moving around the room? Dare he light the lamp?
Pure horror at it's creepiest!
