    Forever Haunting

    I was probably no more than 10 when Great Tales crept underneath my bed and scared even the boogey monster away. Three decades later, I am again delightfully, delectably, deliciously in pursuit of reading this exquisite collection again as an adult. For everyone who has ever felt that stifling pause between the real and unreal, there is 'Silent Snow, Secret Snow,' on a descent into madness. Saki's three hunters, returning from a day on the marsh, will ensure you never look at a set of French doors the same way again. And a truly underappreciated gem, 'The Great God Pan' will leave even the hardiest soul faintly trepiditious of rapture's gifts. Buy it. Own it. Cling to it forever. It is almost 60 years old for heaven's sake, and is still being talked about. 'Nuff said.

    Best Anatholigy Ever!

    This is a great anatholigy. It has classics by Henry James, Bulwer-Lytton, H.G. Wells, Dorthy Parker, Ernest Hemingway, Charles Dickens, Algernon Blackwood, Montigue Rhode James, O.Henry, Arthur MacHen, and Oliver Onion's classic novel 'The Beckoning Fair Ones' regarded by some as the best ghost story ever. It has every important classic horror author, from Honaire de Balzac, to Geffory Household. It has ghosts, madmen, monsters, wicthes, vampires, and more! I deffently recomend it.
