Pigeons From Hell by Robert E. Howard

Book Description:

Robert E. Howard, best known as the creator of Conan the Barbarian, also wrote stories in a diverse range of genres. He was particularly masterful with horror stories. This 1938 spell-binding story is one of his best. In 1983, Stephen King, wrote that he considered Pigeons from Hell to be “one of the finest horror stories of our century.” With a decaying Southern family, a gruesome murder, a strange sort of “undead” creature, and, of course, evil pigeons, it makes for a story that will send a chill down your backbone.

Review –

I’m sorry but if what the blurb above says is true and this is one of the author’s best short stories, I’d hate to read the others. AND, though I love and admire Mr. Stephen King, he is dead wrong about this story.

I kept waiting for the scary, creepy, backbone-chilling part, but it never came.

All in all, it was just around spooky story to share around a campfire or read during the month of October .

Not impressed but I do like the cover art.
