Pulp Crazy – The Prophecy by Hugh B. Cave

http://pulpcrazy.com/podcast/81.mp3

In this weeks episode I will be discussing The Prophecy by Hugh B. Cave. It first appeared in the October 1934 issue of Black Book Detective. The Prophecy can be categorized more as a horror story, than a detective story. I would peg the time period around the year it was published, 1934. It involves four young whites who decide to pay a visit to a black church that is deep into the spiritualist movement of the day. As a matter of fact, a nice name drop to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is made in the story. A fifth member of the group warns them against going, insisting that something bad will happen to them, hence the title of the story.
