20-page introduction and essay on Ryan by Dwayne Olson entitled Honor, Sadism And Dysfunction: The Dark, Demented World Of R. R. Ryan. Originally published in 1939, the author is credited with several of the most compelling and over-the-top novels in the horror genre. The only author with three entries on Karl Edward Wagner's list of the 39 best horror novels of all time, Ryan's work has been known to only a few devotees: this novel is a descent into madness, perversion, and the supernatural like no other, one of the most deeply disturbing works to ever appear in the genre.
