University Press of Kentucky

Unbeknownst to most lovers of the horror genre in fiction, the famous and well-published Russell Kirk is also the same Russell Kirk who founded postwar conservatism. Beginning in the late 1940s, Kirk began to write a series of profitable short stories for periodicals. He published his first novel, Old House of Fear, in 1961 and continued to publish his fiction until the end of his life. Most of his stories deals with theological issues as well as issues of place and region.
