Secrets of Sinister House - Publication History

Publication History

After four issues as The Sinister House of Secret Love, which featured Gothic romance/horror stories written by Michael Fleisher, the title changed to Secrets of Sinister House, and the original format and romance angle was abandoned the following issue.

In the same vein as House of Mystery and House of Secrets (as well as its successor, Secrets of Haunted House), Secrets of Sinister House was "hosted" by Eve (the character debuted in issue #6) and included guest appearances by Eve's cousins Cain and Abel. All three characters would later serve as supporting characters in Neil Gaiman's Sandman. In issue #16, Eve was removed as host — as editor Joe Orlando departed from the title, replaced by Jack C. Harris — to focus on the concept of the "sinister houses." The following month, she began nudging Destiny out of Weird Mystery Tales.

Secrets of Sinister House was canceled after publishing fourteen issues in two years. (Together, Sinister House of Secret Love and Secrets of Sinister House published eighteen issues.)

Edited by Joe Orlando and E. Nelson Bridwell, contributors to the title included Alfredo Alcala (issues #6, 13, 14), Robert Kanigher (#6, 9, 11), Sam Glanzman (#7), Michael William Kaluta (covers for issues #6, 7), Maxene Fabe (#8 & 11), Ruben Yandoc (#8 & 11), Jack Oleck (#9, 12, 13), Neal Adams (#10), Mike Sekowsky (#14), and Alex Niño (#8, 11-13).

Famous quotes containing the words history and/or publication:

    The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)

    I would rather have as my patron a host of anonymous citizens digging into their own pockets for the price of a book or a magazine than a small body of enlightened and responsible men administering public funds. I would rather chance my personal vision of truth striking home here and there in the chaos of publication that exists than attempt to filter it through a few sets of official, honorably public-spirited scruples.
    John Updike (b. 1932)
