Gleam of Evil (1962)




Cats are known for their peculiarly possessive behaviour. I once had a cat who would systematically tear all the posters down from my walls if I failed to adhere to his strict feeding schedule (whenever he wanted to eat, he ate). If I scolded him, I could always expect to find something that belonged to me either torn apart or peed on the next day. Cute, cuddly, vengeful little beasts...

In honour of The Boris Karloff Blogathon that Frankensteinia is hosting this week (November 23-29), the THOIA Longboxes have donated this story about a fearsome feline from the October 1962 issue of Boris Karloff Thriller #1. "Gleam of Evil" tells of a pampered pussycat with the power to make terrible things happen to anyone who so much as casts a sideways glance in her direction! Will this pint-sized puffball be the demise of her brave, lion-taming owner?

If this story leaves you hungry for more, be sure to head over to The Horrors of it All, where Karswell has left a bowl out on the porch containing yet another story from Boris Karloff Thriller #1, entitled: "The Hand in the Wall"!

>don't mess with the big cat!

But at the same time it's best to never underestimate the power of a baby kitten too.
