While the name Medical Horrors might lead one to believe that this magazine dealt with either horror or weird menace stories, its contents are much more mundane. There is an unattributed "article" about psychics ("I Am Thy Father's Spirit") and another about, "a fiend incarnate - monster, madman, monstrosity" ("Dr. A. W. Waite: Satan's Personal Representative" by Mary Ellis). None the less the thrust of this publication is best captured by the sub-title of "Chloroformed" by Gordon Reynolds: §§"With consciousness lulled into oblivion by drugs, what indignities and worse does the virgin have perpetrated upon her uncovered body?" §§A writing contest calls for the best original stories from, "All those who have suffered horrible experiences in medicine." Thus the thrust of this title was the sensational expose. It is of marginal interest at best except as a curiosity. There was only one issue.
