It's not in the best condition, and has seen better days, but apparently, this is the book that was the basis for the 1972 Amicus film of the same name

Book contents:
  • "Let the Punishment Fit the Crime"
  • "Dead Right"
  • "The High Cost of Dying"
  • "Reflection of Death" - Film story with Ian Hendry
  • "Poetic Justice" - Film story with Peter Cushing
  • "Whirlpool"
  • "Blind Alleys" - Film story with Patrick Magee
  • "And All Through the House" - Film story with Joan Collins

From Wikipedia:
"Tales from the Crypt is a mass-market paperback collection of eight horror comic stories gathered from the pages of the EC Comics comic books of the 1950s. It is one of five such collections published by Ballantine Books between 1964 and 1966 (the others are The Vault of Horror, Tales of the Incredible, The Autumn People and Tomorrow Midnight). The presentation of the material is problematic at best, since the color comic book pages are represented in black and white and broken into horizontal strips to fit the mass-market paperback format. Still, the collections are historically important. They were the first attempt to resurrect the EC comics, only a decade after public outcry had driven them off the racks. They were the first introduction of those comics to a generation of readers too young to remember them in their first run."

This was my first encounter with EC comics,I bought this from a 2nd hand book shop well over 20 years ago and still have it....

As an Alice Cooper fan, the book 'Ghoul' by Michael Slade is well worth tracking down

Was looking at it and thinking of getting it, Alice's recommendation has made it a no brainer.

Anyone read this author's books?
