For over two centuries, the literature of terror has attracted writers both classical and comic, imaginative and realistic. The stories collected here include The Body Snatcher by Robert Louis Stevenson, The Room in the Tower by E.F. Benson, The Boarded Window by Ambrose Bierce, and Moonlight Sonata by Alexander Woollcott. The collection moves from the witty to the macabre to the plain terrifying and represents the cream of the horror genre.

J.A. Cuddon has selected some of the best classic short stories of all time. Each story adds its own plot, pace or auditory spice to the mix. And Cuddon has seasoned his soup perfectly. Nigel Davenport, Rula Lenska, Andrew Sachs and David Rintoul bring out the best in each piece. Some use classic "dark and stormy night" voices. Others add chilling horror through their very lighthearted lack of concern. The evil spirits in these tales will send delicious chills up the spine.
