This I believe may have been one story from an anthology.

The horrific image has been with me from the early 70's. I remember a metal chair is heated over a fire until it glows. A man is brought forward, stripped and forced to sit on the chair. He is basically cooked. A hand reaches out and pulls a lump of cooked flesh from the burned man and eats it.

I think this was a werewolf story, or the other stories had a werewolf theme.

This, as I said, I read in the 70's.

  • That's a fairly standard form of torture called an iron chair. This might be a direct reference to the Westphalia werewolf case – FuzzyBoots Mar 4 '15 at 20:11
  • One fictional depiction can be found in the Pine Deep trilogy with Griswold, who is Stubbes. – FuzzyBoots Mar 4 '15 at 20:20
  • The Pine Deep Trilogy is a little too late. Thanks for your input. – Kevin Mar 4 '15 at 21:00
  • I remember this also from my youth in the 70's; clearly it affected us both for this image to endure. as a youth I would have been reading from the classic horror genre : I think it was a vampire tale. – user42748 Mar 9 '15 at 3:14
