    This is a facsimile copy first published by Souvenir Press and my VERY FIRST encounter with horror and nightmares. It was about 1976 - 77 that I found my mum's copy sitting on the dressing table with its lurid half transformed werewolf and corpse and still its gives me a scare. For me this will always be the ultimate horror book and to this day I still do not recognise any of the authors. Buy it just for that cover, you know you want to!

    Could not believe that this being the first US edition is not posted here. Well the error is corrected and this along with the original UK edition are here for your blood curdling pleasure. A rather fab read, enjoy.

    I was in my mid-teens (and going through a "horror story" phase) when I found this in a collection of literature. I have to say the stories were well written, very detailed, and somewhat informative-depending on the story. Some stories weren't scary at all, and then some were just downright blood-curdling, weird macabre. I spent many late nights reading this and others like it. I wouldn't recommend it now.

    A decent amount of good horror stories. A lot of psychological horror mixed with macabre. There were rare misses in a lot of the stories. I like the fact that none of the stories go past the 1970's. Old horror is usually the best kind of horror. I'd recommend it to any horror fans out there looking to get into the spirit.

    I really liked this book and some of the stories gave me the chills. This book is a collection of 50 horror stories. I found some of them not to scary but there were a few that were really creepy and made me wonder why I read the book. i loved most of the stories but a few were a bit boring and that's why I rated this book 4 stars instead.

    Some of the stories were quite scary, though I would not venture so far as to say they were horrific at all. Many of them were also not scary, and I'll admit I had actually given up on this book for a while before I picked it up and decided to finish it.

    This collection of macabre short stories sparked my life long love of reading. Try it as a gift on your teen.

    A great book full of interesting, at times horrific and grisly, tales. It should be included in every horror lover's collection. I consider it a classic.

    Every time I open this book -- every time -- I begin a story so numb and lifeless, that I must put it down again disgusted. What is the reason for this? Was this collection crafted with the mistaken belief that a horror story describing facts alone sufficed for a scare -- did it think itself a reaction to true crime and criminal fiction, filled with facts? (Not even the best of that!) It's alluring cover is all that it's worth. (As you can see in the above, I have not read the full book.
