The Black Cat - Vintage Book Cover Poster

The Black Cat was an American literary magazine that focused on unusual stories.

The Black Cat published short stories from 1895 to 1922. The magazine's first editor was Herman Umbstaetter. One of the best known stories was  "A Thousand Deaths" by Jack London in the May 1899 issue.

The short stories were mostly fiction but occasionally published science fiction stories by authors such as Frank L. Pollack and Don Mark Lemon. The Black Cat was famous for publishing an early and unexpectedly "bizarre" story by O. Henry entitled "The Marionettes”, in May 1902. The horror story "The Mysterious Card" (1896) by Cleveland Moffett and  Clark Ashton Smith contributed two adventure stories to The Black Cat.

Publisher was The Short story Publishing Company in Boston, MA.
This cover is from December 1890, the artist is unknown.
