A spine-chilling anthology that celebrates the thrilling pleasure and rich literary legacy of horror writing.

From the sinister imagination of Edgar Allan Poe to the supernatural suspense of H. G. Wells, this collection of stories explores a range of eerie experiences; there are hauntings, monsters and plenty of often inexplicable and always terrifying dramas.

The classic masters of the genre are here; in Algernon Blackwood’s deeply unnerving ‘The Occupant in the Room’ a hotel room hides a terrifying secret. In Guy de Maupassant’s 'Vendetta’, a mother is bent on terrible revenge and in ‘The Treasure of Abbot Thomas’ M. R. James turns a treasure hunt into a nightmare.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, cloth-bound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover.
