This anthology (which has a long, scholarly introduction to the growth of the genre) represents 200 years of 'horror'. For it, J.A. Cuddon has chosen forty-three stories, some by the famous, others by the little known. They range from profound intimations of hell and chaos to the macabre and the bizarre, the sinister and the grotesque. And they include the witty, the 'sick' and the plain terrifying. 600 pages of varied and compulsive reading.
