Case vanished from the horror field for a decades time after the publication of Fengriffen

Case vanished from the horror field for a decades time after the publication of Fengriffen. In 1980, he returned with his werewolf novel Wolf Tracks, and the following year Arkham House published his work The Third Grave. Almost twenty years were to pass before he released with another collection, Brotherly Love. His collection Brotherly Love and Other Tales of Faith and Knowledge was published by Pumpkin Books in the late 90's. His novel Fengriffen was adapted into the film And Now the Screaming Starts! (1973) by director Roy Ward Baker for Amicus Productions.

FENGRIFFEN: A Chilling Tale. Mr. Case wrote The Cell: Three Tales of Horror which appeared in 1969 and even without the prescriptive subtitle, you'll know where you're at right on the first page-glowering in the gloaming of the 19th century.

David Case's first collection, The Cell: Three Tales of Horror appeared in 1969. It was followed by the novels Fengriffen: A Chilling Tale, Wolf Tracks and The Third Grave.

Reviews about Fengriffen: A Chilling Tale (5):
Great Book way better then the movie with the God awful name of "......And Now the Screaming Starts......" it's creepier and has more to it then the movie which really isn't that bad except for the lame title.
This is a wee novel, aye, coming to just 176 pages in the Lancer pb edition of 1970. In America it was published as a Gothic Romance and I doubt that it found its proper audience, although it had some different editions. It was filmed as AND NOW THE SCREAMING STARTS -- a wretchedly stupid film title, when the original title, FENGRIFFEN, has so much atmosphere and simplicity. The book relates the story of a family curse, delves into the past from which that curse infiltrates into the future and clutches its victims with remorseless hold. The atmosphere of gothic mystery is superbly evoked, and the final supernatural revelation, subtly revealed, is absolutely chilling. The author, David Case, has read a number of books for Books on Tape, and one wishes that his excellent voice had been used to narrate this, his finest book. He will be appearing as a guest this year, 2010, at the World Horror Convention in England. I love this book and have read it many many times. The writing is -- one could almost call it elegant, it is so beautifully expressed and realized. And yet never has writing been so effective and evocative. It's not just fancy, beautiful prose -- it tells this amazing story, and tells it very well. It pulls one in and hypnotizes with its effectiveness. An utterly bewitching book. Highly recommended!
Anybody interested in this book has probably seen the film called And Now The Screaming Starts, which is the film version of this book. Set in the 18th century, young-bride Catherine is tormented with ghastly gohsts, and a hand the crawls around and kills anybody who tries to reveal to Catherine about Fengriffens secret... this is a very good book, and everybody should read it!
I have searched for this book for years and am very happy to find it at last. I first read this in my Senior Year of high school. It scored me the only A+ I ever received for a book report. This is really a great read and I would highly recomend it to anyone who enjoys this genre.
I read this book when I was in high school back in the '70's. I never forgot it. It was mesmerizing, provocative, and spooky.
