Classic Horror Tales

Editors of Canterbury Classics

Curl up with this collection of classic scary stories from the masters of the genre.

With dozens of stories of the macabre, fantastic, and supernatural, Classic Horror Tales is sure to keep readers on the edges of their seats. This collection of works by classic writers spans more than a century--from nineteenth-century trailblazers such as John William Polidori, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Washington Irving to twentieth-century masters like Saki, Edith Wharton, and Franz Kafka. The fear of the unknown is a driving force in literature, and the horror genre surpasses all others in bringing this idea to the forefront of the reader's consciousness. A wide range of cultures and classes of society are represented in this volume, reminding us that dark forces lurk all around us--for even in broad daylight, a shadow exists somewhere.
