Seek out his NINE HORRORS AND A DREAM and you'll have a good
sense of what he was about. He did contributed to WEIRD
TALES, at the end of its pulp phase, with such stories as
"Slime" (his BLOB story).
Brennan also published a little magazine, MACABRE, that was
one of the rallying points for horrorists in the '60s (along
with Robert Lowndes's MAGAZINE OF HORROR and its stablemates,
and such less-focused others as FANTASTIC and THE MAGAZINE OF
FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION). It continued into the '70s, by
which time it was joined by WHISPERS and WEIRDBOOK and a host
Todd Mason, who would suggest that Brennan's style was pretty
much fully formed by the mid-'50s at latest.
