Notes
Examples of literary/fictional mentions of 'uncanny sound'. Burroughs seemed to have been particularly fond of descriptions of 'uncanny sound' and the phrase appears in others of his books (e.g. Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar).

First serialized 1914 and published in book form in 1916. Third in the Tarzan series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beasts_of_Tarzan).

Quotes
Chapter 8   "Presently there came an interruption. Some one was approaching the hut. Sheeta gave a low growl and slunk into the blackness of a far corner. Evidently the visitor did not hear the warning sound, for almost immediately he entered the hut—a tall, naked, savage warrior.

He came to Tarzan's side and pricked him with a spear. From the lips of the ape-man came a weird, uncanny sound, and in answer to it there leaped from the blackness of the hut's farthermost corner a bolt of fur-clad death. Full upon the breast of the painted savage the great beast struck, burying sharp talons in the black flesh and sinking great yellow fangs in the ebon throat."   Added by: sirfragalot

Chapter 9   "From the dense jungles upon either side came the weird night cries of the carnivora—the maniacal voice of the hyena, the coughing grunt of the panther, the deep and awful roar of the lion. And with them strange, uncanny notes that the girl could not ascribe to any particular night prowler—more terrible because of their mystery."   Added by: sirfragalot

Chapter 20   "He was afraid of the jungle; uncanny noises that were indeed frightful came forth from its recesses—the tangled mazes of the mysterious country back of the beach."   Added by: sirfragalot
