Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA --Two masters of the horror form, in handsome new editions. Bierce's baroque nihilism and Bloch's colloquial morbidity have a natural appeal to teens. Both books include the authors' best known story (``The Damned Thing'' and ``Where the Buffalo Roam,'' respectively) and both could be used creatively in the classroom.
