Modern Design

Here’s a gruesome story submitted by one of my favorite ebay sellers of pre-code horror--- Mr. Brian Hirsch! Tomorrow I’ll have another one from Brian too so let’s all say thanks for sharing and give him a big hand! Not a glory hand, please just clap your hands...

From the March 1953 issue of Mister Mystery #10

The wife-lamp at the end could almost be something by Allan Jones! Thanks for posting all these great old stories.

It's the whole version of the lamp from Bob Clark's A Christmas Story!

I'm glad someone made an Allen Jones analogy, shows how intelligent my blog attendees are! For those who don't know, Jones was most famous for designing / inspiring the Korova Milk Bar costumes and props in Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, amongst other fetishistic furniture. See this:

Great art,great use of the host without getting too corny,and a good variation on the "adultery=murder" plot. >A Christmas Story. I ruined my ex-fiancee's Christmas once by telling an E.C-style joke about the wife dismembering the husband as revenge for the lamp he brought into the house,while we were watching that movie.
