Considered to be the first "weird western" short story, 'The Horror From The Mound" is about a former cowpuncher, Steve Brill, who regrets having left the cowboy life to become a farmer in West Texas. He is also curious to see if there might be spanish treasure buried in a nearby hullock, which his mexican neighbors avoid walking past. As if it were haunted. A classic story from the pulp era, by Robert E. Howard which combines elements of regional legends and the horror story.
