Description: This 1938 spell-binding story is one of his best. In 1983, Stephen King, wrote that he considered Pigeons from Hell to be "one of the finest horror stories of our century." With a decaying Southern family, a gruesome murder, a strange sort of "undead" creature, and, of course, evil pigeons, it makes for a story that will send a chill down your backbone.
