Seeking a short horror story from an anthology from maybe the 1970s. A traveller enters a house and finds, in the basement, women whose arm and leg bones have been removed but they are still alive.
This sounds like it could be "The House of Horror" by Seabury Quinn. In the end of the story, the narrator descends into the basement of a house and finds kidnapped young women who have been kept in cages. They have been surgically altered and turned into monsters by amputating their limbs, removing bones, gouging out eyes, cutting off ears etc.
