      Peter Alexander Haining April 2, 1940 November 19, 2007 was a British journalist, author and anthologist who lived and worked in Suffolk Born in Enfield, Middlesex, he began his career as a reporter in Essex and then moved to London where he worked on a trade magazine before joining the publishing house of New English Library.Haining achieved the position of Editorial Director before becoming a full time writer in the early Seventies He edited a large number of anthologies, predominantly of horror and fantasy short stories, wrote non fiction books on a variety of topics from the Channel Tunnel to Sweeney Todd and also used the pen names Ric Alexander and Richard Peyton on a number of crime story anthologies In the Seventies he wrote three novels, including The Hero 1973 , which was optioned for filming.In two controversial books, Haining argued that Sweeney Todd was a real historical figure who committed his crimes around 1800, was tried in December 1801, and was hanged in January 1802 However, other researchers who have tried to verify his citations find nothing in these sources to back Haining s claims A check of the website Old Bailey at for Associated Records 1674 1834 for an alleged trial in December 1801 and hanging of Sweeney Todd for January 1802 show no reference in fact the only murder trial for this period is that of a Governor Lt Col Joseph Wall who was hanged 28 January 1802 for killing a Benjamin Armstrong 10 July 1782 in Goree Africa and the discharge of a Humphrey White in January 1802 Strong reservations have also been expressed regarding the reliability of another of Haining s influential non fiction works, The Legend and Bizarre Crimes of Spring Heeled Jack He wrote several reference books on Doctor Who, including the 20th anniversary special Doctor Who A Celebration Two Decades Through Time and Space 1983 , and also wrote the definitive study of Sherlock Holmes on the screen, The Television Sherlock Holmes 1991 and several other television tie ins featuring famous literary characters, including Maigret, Poirot and James Bond Peter Haining s most recent project was a series of World War Two stories based on extensive research and personal interviews The Jail That Went To Sea 2003 , The Mystery of Rommel s Gold 2004 , Where The Eagle Landed 2004 , The Chianti Raiders 2005 and The Banzai Hunters 2007.He won the British Fantasy Awards Karl Edward Wagner Award in 2001.

This is a wonderful idea an anthology of stories from the legendary pulp Weird Tales, presented as facsimile reprints And, in an attempt to make this book even like the magazine that inspired it, it includes a sampling of non story elements from the magazine there s a representative letters section, a smattering of poetry, one of Lee Brown Coye s weirdisms pages, a selection of It Happened to Me readers experiences surely a bit too literary to be genuine , and a few of the sort of ads seen in t [...]


    2. This book raises the real feeling and atmosphere of Weird Tales Each story is accompanied by an illustration and here and there are ads from that time included Although not every story is equally good, it remains unfortunate that there is nowadays no longer such a good old fashion Unique Magazine , which conveys this atmosphere.


    3. Peter Haining s 1990 Weird Tales anthology takes a different tack from two other similar anthologies that I ve recently read Weird Tales 32 Unearthed Terrors 1988 had cherry picked one story from each year of the celebrated magazine s 32 year run 1923 1954 , while Marvin Kaye s Weird Tales collection of that same year had included not just stories from the publication s classic years, but from the five reincarnations dating from 1973 1987 Haining s collection, on the other hand, while dishing ou [...]
