Fear, drama and mystery combine to create classic horror in this dramatic selection of stories from the nineteenth century.
It was this period in which the horror story genre really gained popularity, developing all the characteristics by which we recognise horror stories today. This anthology brings together 29 of the greatest horror stories of the period, from 1816 to 1912. It covers all the main story telling traditions – British, Irish, American and European with authors such as Bram Stoker, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, M R James, Hoffmann, Poe, Hawthorne, Balzac, William Hope Hodgson. It introduces lesser known authors such as William Maginn, and Francis Marion Crawford who deserve to be better acknowledged in the history of this genre than they have been to date.
Prepare to be horrifed, scared and terrified with these classic stories that have lost none of the scare factor since the day they were first published. It covers everything from the supernatural, ghosts to scientific and psychological horror.
Not to be missed – but don’t read it late at night. You might experience a few nightmares!
