Reader's note

Born in the eighteenth century, the horror story grew from the literature of ‘terror’ Many writers have been attracted by its possibilities, including Maupassant, R.L. Steveson, Ambrose Bierce, E.F. Benson, L.P. Hartley, Ray Bradbury and Patricia Highsmith. This anthology, which has a long scholarly introduction to the growth of the genre, represents two hundred years of ‘horror’. For it J.A. Cuddon has chosen forty-three stories, some by the famous, some by the little-known. They range from profound imitations of hell and chaos to the macabre and the bizarre, the sinister and the grotesque. And they include the witty, the ‘sick’ and the plain terrifying. Six hundred pages of varied and compulsing reading are in this book. So grab the covers and don't let the monster bite as you enjoy this unique collection of scary tales!
