Dread Summons

From an old pulp story called Dread Summons, this pictorial study of suspense is cinematic — the sort of story that should be read under the covers with a flashlight.

"The door moved a little against his hand,
moved slightly, eerily . . ."

Virgil Finlay — Weird Tales — November, 1937
