Medical Horrors

Total Issues: 1

Combination fiction and non-fiction. While the name Medical Horrors might lead one to believe that this magazine dealt with either horror or weird menace stories, its contents are much more mundane. There is an unattributed "article" about psychics ("I Am Thy Father's Spirit") and another about "a fiend incarnate - monster, madman, monstrosity" ("Dr. A. W. Waite: Satan's Personal Representative" by Mary Ellis). None the less the thrust of this publication is best captured by the sub-title of "Chloroformed" by Gordon Reynolds.
