The Horror in the Museumby H. P. Lovecraft
H. P. Lovecraft, the creator of Cthulhu Mythos, is the acknowledged modern master of the macabre, but he also worked with many younger pulp writers. Collected here are a dozen of their experiments in arcane terror, unearthly horror, and inhuman evil. Adding his inimitable touch, Lovecraft revised these tales of terror into frightful shadows of his own unique imagination. "Lovecraft's fiction is one of the cornerstones of modern horror."Clive Barker "H. P. Lovecraft has yet to be surpassed as the 20th century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale."Stephen King

Having died in obscure poverty, he achieved posthumous fame for his books and stories. Today, he is best known for his take on The Call of Cthulhu. Because of his influence on contemporary writers and the development of his unique style known as "Lovecraftian," he is often compared to Edgar Allan Poe.

There are a couple of chilling and frightening stories that gave me nightmares and they are both from the The Horror in the Museum - 24 Chilling Tales by HPL and others. Both stories are by the same writer - Hazel Heald. First story is The Man of Stone and the other one is Winged Death. Pigeons From Hell by Robert E. Howard is chilling, too. Never read these stories late at night by yourself with limited light and if you hear someone whistling it's too late for you.
