The Horror Horn

(1974)
The Best Short Stories of E F Benson
A collection of stories by

 
 
Edward Frederic Benson (1867 - 1940) was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist, archaeologist, and short story writer, best known as the true master of the gothic occult story.

The Horror-Horn tells the story of a skiing holiday in the shadow of the mysteriously named Ungeheuerhorn mountain. Literally the name translates as "Horror-Horn". It appears that a local legend has it that hideous and terrifying monsters live in caves high up on the mountain.

These monsters are primitive creatures... possibly an early stage of evolution of human beings, but wild, savage, malevolent. Moreover, the legend has it that they violently rape any human, male or female who they can manage to catch.When the narrator of this story loses his way on the mountain as dusk is falling, he soon finds himself pursued by an abonimable female monster, bent on having her evil way with him.
