The genre of supernatural horror began with the crude efforts of Washington Irving in his classic tale The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and was perfected by Edgar Allen Poe with the likes of The Fall of the House of Usher. Between 1820 and the early 1920s, the tales of supernatural horror developed into their own genre, but they were a genre without a home. It was not until March of 1923, with the first publication of the pulp magazine Weird Tales, that the authors of these tales had a definitive outlet for their stories of the weird, strange, and macabre. This collection, Supernatural Horror, gathers some of the finest offerings in the first 100 years of this unique genre of weird tales.
