However, until that day, here is a sample of the few I have managed to obtain.

The following title is not by DW, but is by a self-confessed DW fan, Giovanni Scognamillo. Giovanni is a Turkish author, who includes horror amongst his writings and corresponded with DW in the 1970s. He is currently working on a revised edition of Dehşetın Kapilari (see below) and has recently found a publisher interested in publishing DW in Turkey. His hope is that he will be the translator.
