One for the Library Shelf
This excellent book was created from the magazine "Weird Tales" that was published from 1923 to 1954. This magazine was the first genre devoted to horror and fantasy fiction.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Like it's forbearer, the book is full of diversity by several authors. Each story is told in ways that were a first of their kind in the genre of gothic horror. This book contains the best and most imaginative of the stories that were published. If you don't like the 15th story, there is a good chance you will like the 16th. It is that diverse in its scope and depth.
The blend of detective and terror will satisfy the most discriminating reader. With tales of folklore, mystery and weird science fantasies, there is something for everyone. At 581 pages, if you don't find several tales that make your heart race and ensure that you check the locks on your doors before going to bed, then you are not a fan of this type of writing.
I hope you find my review / opinion helpful.
