The 13 Best Horror Stories of All Time - Robert Louis Stevenson, H.G. Wells, M.R. James, Bram Stoker, Shirley Jackson, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Arthur Machen, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Algernon Blackwood, Oliver Onions, W.W. Jacobs, Leslie Pockell, H.P. Lovecraft A lovely collection. I'd read most of them--the only new one was "The Beckoning Fair One" by Oliver Onions--but it was nice to sit down and curl up with them. (Would have been slightly better if the M.R. James one was "Lost Hearts", but I realize I am partisan. :) )

The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is because five stars means I recommend books to people regardless of their interest in the genre, and this is not a book I would do that with.

...put like that, I am considering revising my starring policy.

For the record, the table of contents runs:

* The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe
* Green Tea by J. Sheridan Le Fanu
* The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
* The Bottle Imp by Robert Louis Stevenson
* The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen
* Dracula's Guest by Bram Stoker
* The Monkey's Paw by W.W. Jacobs
* Oh, Whistle And I'll Come To You, My Lad by M.R. James
* The Country Of The Blind by H.G. Wells
* The Willows by Algernon Blackwood
* The Beckoning Fair One by Oliver Onions
* The Call Of Cthulhu by H.P. Lovecraft
* The Lottery by Shirley Jackson
