    This is not just another random collection of horror stories. I

    This is not just another random collection of horror stories. It is a, not quite chronological, overview of gothic horror short stories from the 1830's up to the pulp era of the 1920's. Some of the best stories are by authors you've probably never heard of and aren't likely to find elsewhere. This is a high quality anthology and one of the best that I have found.

    Implied scary!!

    I really enjoy reading the older horror stories,for the scare is more implied,and in your mind,than blood and gore! Good stories!
