4.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of horror tales! 20 July 1999
By A Customer
20 short stories written by various writers. The shortest being 1 1/2 pages and longest is A Peter Straub story about 50 pages. The subjects of the tales cover dark magic, evil people, alien monsters and your average twilight zone horror. Not all of the stories are great, but all of them are enjoyable. If you like reading horror you will defeniatly find something you like in this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmm..... 10 Oct 2009
Hmmm... maybe Stephen Jones and I have very different thoughts on what terror/horror is... Well - I've been reading/watching horror for the past 30 years - and the horror with this book is that it is in my bookshelf. I think there was one ok story in it (well ok - probably a few more... but I had those in other collections). BUT fortunately it was very cheap and the deal was perfect, so no problems there :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars don't let the cover fool you... 25 July 2000
By Felicia C. Derian - Published on Amazon.com
3 years ago, when I was in England, I bought this book. My friend held it up for me and said "How about this? It looks creepy." I thought, from the cover, it looked silly. I thought every story would be about vampires rising from the grave, and mysterious tahitian dolls that cause mayhem... Was I ever wrong. I adore this book; every story is a gem of subtlety. Most, if not all, are wonderful examples of psychological horror. Think of the old t.v. series, "The Twilight Zone" and you'll understand what type of horror these stories are aiming for.
