Description

Four masters of the Gothic short story in one elegant, comprehensive volume. This treasure trove of well-known and obscure gems is sure to resonate today with old favorites and new discoveries. Mortality, loss, and pain are specters which haunt these timeless stories. The supernatural stalks in shadows, pushing characters and readers to towards the edge of our understanding of psychology, metaphysics, and morality. These masterpieces provide shivers of terror, the frisson of fascination with the occult, and a strange comfort in the universality of fear regarding the unknown, mortality, and our own depths of human darkness. Here is an updated version of these stories formatted for all e-readers. Light a candle, grab a blanket, pour a cognac and delve into the work of some of the most enigmatic and ingenious writers of American gothic literature.
