The 9th volume contains the following 23 short stories.

Man-Hunt (Raymond Williams) - an escaped murderer thinks he has found a refuge.
The Fly (Dulcie Gray) - a weak tale of a fed-up couple planning each other's demise.
Thou Shalt Not Suffer A Witch (Dorothy K. Haynes)- the first decent tale, a young girl is accused of being a witch and looks for a scapegoat.
Strictly For The Birds (Lindsay Stewart) - what is that strange man feeding to the pigeons?
Bloodthirsty (Martin Waddell) - the brain must survive, good comic relief.
An Apparition At Noon (Adobe James) - an odd haunting in Kenya, not bad.
The Baby Machine (Rene Morris) - would you trust a machine to look after your baby?
The Best Teacher (Colin Graham) - a horror writer is persuaded to visit a fan, pretty gruesome.
Stick With Me Kid, And You'll Wear Diamonds (Walter Winward) - a hen-pecked under-achiever is pushed too far.
The Happy Return (Dulcie Gray) - a spurned lover takes her revenge in a particularly nasty way, another decent tale.
Father Forgive Me (Raymond Harvey) - a priest is blackmailed by two of his flock.
A Comedy Of Terrors (John Burke) - where does a movie special effects man get his ideas from?
The Boy Who Neglected His Grass Snake (Tim Stout) - look after your pets.
Jolly Uncle (Lindsay Stewart) - an elderly relative looks after a youngster with eyes on the child's inheritance.
Mr. Anstey's Scarecrow (W. H. Carr) - a widow seeks revenge on her hisband's killer
Not Enough Poison (Alex Hamilton) - heat wave, ants and just too long.
Old Feet (Martin Waddell) - a real oddity, involving several severed feet. No horror just lashings of dark humour.

I first read this book back in '70s, when I was about 10, probably not appropriate reading but I used to sneak it off the bookshelf at my gran's.
This was a real blast from the past, they are not the greatest horror tales in the world and seem to rely heavily on the gore factor. The exception to this was "Mrs Anstey's Scarecrow" and "The Whispering Horror" which are genuinely good, suspenseful stories.
However, I enjoyed re-reading the book. It is a bit dated but good fun all the same.

I.R. Kerr has given an excellent summary of the contents. I will merely add that it is one of the so-so collections-not as good as the first few volumes but certainly better than the later ones. An unusual feature is that unlike in the earlier volumes all the stories are original. The only one which you may find in other anthologies is the Dorothy Haynes story.
Not sure what the younger generation would think, but this would be certainly be of interest to those who followed the Pan Horror series in the 1960s and 1970s.
