Product description

From Amazon

If you could have only one anthology of dark stories, this would be the one to have. Having observed that "fans of horror fiction most often restrict their reading to books and stories given a horror category label, thus missing some of the finest pleasures in that fictional mode," David G. Hartwell assembles here 56 important tales within an insightful critical framework; his purpose is to "clear the air and broaden future considerations of horror." Several well-known classics are included, but there are also dozens of lesser-known horror tales, including many by science fiction and literary writers. Get one copy for yourself. Get another for that friend or relative who doesn't understand why you like to read horror.

Review

“A gigantic, superlatively edited historical overview of horror fiction.” ―Chicago Sun-Times

“For a sample of the current excellence and variety of horror, one could do no better.” ―
New York Newsday

“An important work which belongs in every library.” ―
The West Coast Review of Books
