Children of Horror,

A terrified son tries to save his hypnotized father from the god Anubis. The curse of Scarabaeus crawls out for a reckoning on a mummy thief. And in New Orleans, a disillusioned writer attends the Mardi Gras and dinner with the Egyptian god Sebek, as we continue to slither through a series of Egyptian tales from Robert Bloch. The Egyptian gods desire you to “pass a good time on the bayou, che” with our latest lurid tale.

Our fourth episode is “The Secret of Sebek”. This terrifying tale was published in the November 1937 issue of Weird Tales and continues our crawl through the Robert Bloch Egyptian series.

As stated by Weird Tales:

What grisly horror, spawned in prehistoric ages in ancient Egypt, stalked through the weird house in New Orleans? A tale of the Mardi Gras!

This slithering story concerns our narrator’s visit to New Orleans during Mardi Gras. While kicking off the festivities he is invited to Henricus Vanning’s special party for “The Coffin Club”. Our narrator is asked to settle a dispute over a stolen mummy for the god Sebek.

Can our narrator warn “The Coffin Club” in time to avoid the wrath of Sebek? Or will he just run away after dinner…crying crocodile tears? –JL
