Carl Richard Jacobi was an American journalist and author. He wrote short stories in the horror, crime, adventure, and fantasy genres. Jacobi’s stories appeared in such magazines as Weird Tales, Thrilling, Ghost Stories, Doc Savage, Startling Stories, Thrilling Wonder Stories and Strange Stories.
And if that wasn’t enough, Carl Jacobi also produced some science fiction, mainly space opera, published in such magazines as Planet Stories.
He was one of the last surviving pulp-fictioneers to have contributed to the legendary American horror magazine Weird Tales during its “glory days” (the 1920s and 1930s). His stories have been translated into French, Swedish, Danish and Dutch.
“Revelations in Black” is a terrifying psychological horror story first written by Carl Jacobi and submitted to Weird Tales in 1933. Farnsworth Wright, the editor of Weird Tales first rejected “Revelations in Black”. But something in the story had stuck in the editor’s mind and he subsequently weeks later, in a rare instance, begged Jacobi to have the story back for Weird Tales.
Weird Tales described the tale as:
“An utterly strange story of three mad volumes and a weird woman who sat by a fountain in the house of twenty-six bluejays,”
Tonight’s tale centers on a narrator discovering a trilogy of interesting books written by a madman named Alessandro Larla. Larla’s delusional prose literally captures the existence of …vampires. But, as a tangled spider’s web, these books are more than literature to our children of the night.
What terrifying revelation awaits our intrepid narrator concluding the trilogy of books by Alessandro Larla? Will he be able to avoid the temptation to sink his teeth into the books or destroy them before the co-authors bite back?
