This volume also includes: Bram Stoker, “The Squaw”; Ambrose Bierce, “Moxon’s Master” and "The Damned Thing”; R. W. Chambers, “The Repairer of Reputations”; M. P. Shiel, “The House of Sounds”; Henry James, “The Jolly Corner”; Walter de la Mare, “Seaton’s Aunt”; Ambrose Bierce’s “An Inhabitant of Carcosa,” and a Note on the selection by D. Thin.

"The true weird tale has something more than a secret murder, bloody bones, or a sheeted form clanking chains. An atmosphere of breathless and unexplainable dread of outer, unknown forces must be present; a hint of that most terrible conception of the human brain—a malign and particular suspension or defeat of those fixed laws of Nature which are our only safeguard against the assaults of chaos and the daemons of unplumbed space." —H. P. Lovecraft

    An intelligent anthology of classic horror stories

    This is probably one of the greatest short story collections I've ever read. My favorite stories were The White People by Arthur Machen, The Willows by Algernon Blackwood, and, of coarse, The Colour Out of Space by H.P. Lovecraft. Some of the stories, such as The Repairer of Reputations by R.W. Chambers and The Jolly Corner by Henry James, I didn't really understand and subsequently didn't like. The Squaw by Bram Stoker, while good, wasn't really consistant with the overall theme of the collection, which is of atmosphere above all else. Other than these minor complaints, a great anthology.
