KIRKUS REVIEW

A full quiver (sorry), some thirty tales of the macabre have been edited with an eye towards the unusual as well as the lesser known in this field, including some new material by Richard Hughes, Lord Dunsany, Saki and Ambrose Bierce. Outer space lends a new prop to the classic repertoire of haunted houses, ghostly visitations, vampires and werewolves. Theodore Sturgeon has a gruesome story of revenge; John Collier's monstrous Bird of Prey. May Sinclair's tantalizing projection of a union between the quick and the dead- these set off a collection from a nighttime world for the small hours of the morning.
