    Some of the stories are good and others are very good. H.P. Love

    Some of the stories are good and others are very good. H.P. Lovecraft is a little hard to follow sometimes. I think the older generation
    of SI FI  and horror tales would like this book. I found several I haven't read in a long time,

    They are called CLASSIC for a reason!

    This is a wonderful collection of CLASSIC HORROR stories, that when read in the proper environment, are frightening to the core. By proper environment I mean late at night, when everything is quiet and with just enough light to read by.

    If you are looking for axe wielding killers racking up a massively gory body count, these aren't the stories you are looking for. If you want to read the stories written by the great authors who gave birth to the horror genre as we know it, then this is the book for you.
