Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a very good set of five paperbacks. Continue description information for various detailed title information. All are from the 1970's-80's. They are all in very good condition. The pages inside on all are very clean with no markings seen. The bindings are tight and square, NO creasing along the spine of any of these titles. The covers are still clean and mostly shiny with only a hint of shelf wear. All are crown octavo size or 5.5" x 9" with approx 170 pages each.

Publisher and editor Stuart David Schiff began to publish Whispers magazines that would be similar to the prior magazine publication Weird Tales. Whispers rose to feature and become a showcase for dark fiction and art of the 70's. Acclaimed writers such as Manly Wade Wellman, Robert Bloch, Ramsey Campbell and more had their work featured. Artists such as Stephen Fabian and Lee Brown Coye graced the pages. This set is less a "magazine" and more a paperback set as the covers are bound in thicker paperback, not magazine gloss. Following are the included titles in the set.

Whispers Volume 4 Oct. 1979 with stories by Fritz Leiber, Charles Grant, Dennis Etchison and more. Cover by Steve Fabian.

Whispers Volume 4 March 1982 with stories by Ramsey Campbell, Frances Garfield, Ray Russell and more. Cover art by John Stewart.

Whispers Volume 6 Oct. 1987 with stories by Joe Lansdale, Brian Lumley, Manly Wade Wellman and more. Cover art by Stephen Fabian

Whispers Volume 6 Dec. 1984 with stories by Gregory Frost, Margaret Coleman, David Morrell and more. Cover art by Anatoly Ivanov.

Whispers Volume 5 Oct. 1983 with stories by Charles Grant, Manly Wade Wellman, Bruce Hunter and more. Cover art by Kevin Eugene Johnson.
