    The Restless Dead
    by Hugh B. Cave

    A curse lingers over the Everol mansion -- a voodoo curse, born of evil, steeped in blood. The tormented family who lives in this house of horrors is beset by insanity, visions... and death. They have shut themselves off from the world, allowing no one to trespass on their blighted property. No one except Jeff Gordon, a university professor with a special knowledge of voodoo and the occult. Reluctantly, in desperation, the family has permitted Gordon to enter the mansion. But all Gordon's experience could never prepare him for the unearthly creatures that await him there -- or the ultimatre terror of the mysterious caves beneath the house. "Hugh B. Cave is a living legend. His voice can be heard in everything from Richard Laymon to David Niall Wilson." -- Masters of Terror

    The Evil Returns
    by Hugh B. Cave

    Haiti. In this this land of mystery and magic, shadow and supersition, resides the most powerful--and most evil--of voodoo. His ability to control minds has served him well indeed over the years, so well that his very name chills the blood of those who believe. Many thought him dead following a fiery attempt to destroy him. But magic as his is not easily destroyed. He has survived, scarred and deformed, but as powerful and vicious as ever. Now, with the aid of the dark forces at his command, he has set in motion a terrifying plan that will extend his control to unheard-of lengths. Will anyone--or anything be able to stop him, or will this be the beginning of a reign of unspeakable terror?
