Don't Read This! Chilling, Thrilling, Fantastic Tales for the Young and Young at Heart is a unique collection/anthology that fills a missing space on many bookshelves. It is designed to collect together influential short fiction in the genres of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror that popular authors in those genres can point to as important in their formative years. It also serves as a great entry point for young people just discovering these fabulous genres of the imagination.
With contributions from Jane Yolen, Terri Windling, Nancy Etchemendy, Del Howison, Brian Freeman, and many, many more - they explain in their own words what role reading classic speculative fiction played in their formative years and how it influenced their own writing.
Some of the great stories include Anton Chekov's "In the Graveyard," Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Rappiccini's Daughter," Washington Irving's "Legend of Sleepy Hollow," "The Snow Queen" by Hans Christian Andersen, Lovecraft's "The Dunwich Horror" tales from the Brothers Grimm, H.G. Welles, and of course Edgar Allan Poe.
