    1. Very Cool StoriesThis was a great book of different stories from some of the classic masters of horror which paved the way for most of the horror we have today. Four star read for keeping me entertained.


    2. STORY TIME!Today, August 11th 2016, I left my apartment at a bit after noon to go to the laundry room in my building's basement. Time to switch clothes from washer to dryer, and collect the stuff that needed to air-dry. I was the only person home and it was a short errand, so I left the door to the unit unlocked. The spring bolt lock on our unit's door has become increasingly finicky in the two years we've lived in this apartment; keys turn the lock to a certain position, immediately before trip [...]


    3. This is a nice companion volume to my favorite thing written by H.P. Lovecraft, his essay “Supernatural Horror in Literature”, in which he surveys those stories he deems the greatest ancestors to the modern Weird Tale (keeping in mind “modern” at the time was 1925 to 1927).I have a rough waters relationship with Lovecraft. I enjoy, immensely, his imagination, but care not for his purple prose; however, the man could have had a great career as a critic. The stories in this volume are a mi [...]


    4. This was a great overview of horror/supernatural short stories from the nineteenth century. I haven't read much of Lovecraft or his contemporaries, so to someone familiar with his work, this might be a dull collection. Several of the stories have similar concepts -- there are lots of men on ships in cold climates and quite a few dead brides. Oh, and then there was "The Yellow Wallpaper". I have no idea why Lovecraft wrote about Gillman's story in his essay on "weird fiction", but it definitely h [...]


    5. The high points were the William Hope Hodgson story and the Fitz James O'Brien story, I didn't expect this and they perhaps singularly elevate this collection to 4 stars. Nothing in here was so terrible I couldn't believe it, though one of the stories was absurdly anti-semitic and it is well worth skipping that one. I can't recall the title already, but you'll know it when you start to read it.


    6. Really wish I could give this a 7/10 but I can't. It's not suppose to be a 'book of horror' so one should not think that before reading it. It's more a 'book of the weird'. There were probably only a couple tales in here that really moved me enough to be "scared". I feel I have to try and put myself in the time period these were written in order to get the full effect but it doesn't often work as I still end up getting bored. Luckily though that didn't happen too often. I had rated each story as [...]


    7. Let me be honest. I wanted to fall in love with this genre that has been around since campfire ghost stories were invented through this book. But I didn’t. At first, I thought perhaps it was just a few of the earlier tales, where all the women are considered somewhat hysterical or silly and need to be protected and rescued. I moved through each story, waiting for that jewel that would be the door into the rest of the book and hence the whole field of the horror genre. Yet the stories overall r [...]


    8. What can I say? It was $6.95 on sale at Audible for Halloween. I'm not made of stone, people!These stories were chosen from Lovecraft's scholarly essay "Supernatural Horror in Literature" where he discusses a number of authors and works that were influential horror literature. Each is prefaced by a bit of Lovecraft's comments about the work.There is only one narrator I don't like and, thankfully, she only reads a couple of the stories. There is also not a bad story. I know most of them, believe [...]


    9. The stories in this collection which I found to be effective were Guy de Maupassant's "Who Knows", Fitz James O'Brien's "What Was It?", Francis Marion Crowford's "The Dead Smile" and H.R. Wakefield's "The Red Lodge". Do take caution to not read Lovecraft's quotes until afterwards, as they contain spoilers.


    10. An excellent collection of supernatural thrillers from the library of pulp-era cosmic horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. You can clearly see the influence on his earlier works in some of these tales. These are tales of ghosts, madness, and of intrusions from realms unknown. Highly recommended for fans of quiet, intellectual horror, not in the Grand Guignol style.


    11. Great selection of a variety of horror and macabre short stories by a wide variety of different authors! You'll find different levels and types of scary here and you may want to leave the lights on as you read them :) Gave it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


    12. A good survey of early supernatural horror. This book introduced me to several fine authors that I probably would not have read otherwise, and Lovecraft's notes are a helpful guide to further reading (although I recommend reading the notes after the stories, as they sometimes contain spoilers).


    13. 5 stars if it didn't have a very long Henry James piece in the middle. Out of place in a short story collection.





    14. About half of the stories were good. I may use a couple of them in my horror classics class next spring.
