    An anthology of some of the scariest short stories from the nineteenth century, featuring a mix of British, French, and American short story writers. The stories range from tales of the supernatural to more explicitly horrific subjects. The book brings in the chills almost immediately by starting off with Mary Cholmondely’s “Let Loose”. When an evil person dies, does evil itself die?

The stories range from tales of the supernatural to more explicitly horrific subjects. The book brings in the chills almost immediately by starting off with Mary Cholmondely’s “Let Loose”. When an evil person dies, does evil itself die? Samuel Savage’s “The Cat” is about a cat that might not really be a cat, as its fifteen-year old narrator is left to solve the mystery. Some of the scariest stories are those without a supernatural element. They prove that reality can be just as horrifying, or even more than fiction, as written by W.C. Morrow in one of my favorite stories from the collection. There are some stories by unknown writers as well, and it is commendable how Stocks dug them up for readers. I love anthologies because short stories have much lesser time and space to get to the point, unlike novels. It’s a hit or miss within a few pages. Give this one a go if you like the chill factor in reading and appreciate classic literature. There are also numerous sketches that accompany the writing throughout the book.

    2🌟. The short stories were not scary enough. The only horror story I found was in the third short story when the characters faced the invisible creature, which I still didn't know what it was. 2🌟. The short stories were not scary enough.

    Gaidīju, ka būs smieklīgi un vecmodīgi, bet nekā - vietām ij pat šermuļus uzdzina un nezinot rakstīšanas laiku, būtu minējusi, ka šie ir mūsdienu stāsti tradicionāli klasiskā izpildījumā.

    Gan jau rūdītam šausmu stāstu un filmu fanam šie vispār nekādas emocijas neizraisīs. Es neesmu rūdīta. Lasot šos arī jāpatur prātā, ka tie ir no pagātnes nevis mūsdienu.

    A re-read of a book I had as a child that I spotted in the library booksale for 20p. I had to pick it up as I remembered reading these stories over and over, along with the Ghost Stories version in the series. The tales were good and each with a twist, written quite well and not overly simplified. I have to give credit to the illustrations which were great and really added to the stories. I enjoyed revisiting these.

    A companion to the anthology of ghost stories and equally entertaining. More familiar tales of Victorian horror, and again, hopefully a decent introduction to the real thing. This is the type of book I would have devoured as a child before moving on to the much missed Fontana collections of the actual stories. Happy days....

    Not scary and rather clicheic: vampires, bloody hand moving around, etc. Perhaps the reason is the target audience that is young readers but the author still could use some more imagination and add something more original. It is hard to compete with Stoker, Lovecraft, Poe, and King. But easy to read and with bits of classical Victorian scenes.

    A nice intro collection to hook younger readers on the macabre, plus they are Victorian, my favorite!

    Lai gan esmu par daudz redzējusi Supernatural un bērnībā tādus stāstus lasījusi, tie tomēr bija interesanti. Ir stāsti, kas mani joprojām vajā kopš bērnības, tādi stāsti, kas dažreiz liek naktīs baidīties no ēnām uz sienas vai rokām, kas varētu tikt cauri istabas grīdai. Šajā grāmatā varbūt bija nedaudz satraucoši stāsti, bet ļoti apšaubu, ka kāds no tiem man kādreiz traucēs gulēt. Aizraujoši, bet ne biedējoši.

    I read this book and the day I finished it was not good because I was so sad that I am never going to find a great book like this one again.
