Book Description: An anthology of the best tales of ghosts and terror Tales of ghosts and horror can be found in every age, country and culture on earth; they have been passed down orally for millennia and in written form have existed for almost as long as literature itself. Although there have been notable novels of spine chilling hauntings there can be little doubt that the ghost story is a form ideally suited to short stories or novellas. The story that frightens can be explicitly so, with screaming phantoms, a morality tale or humorous, it can be subtly menacing with creeping horror, and can be set almost anywhere. Such stories have never waned in their popularity with the reading public and it is for this reason that so many authors have applied their talents to creating them. Essentially we love to be thrilled and chilled simultaneously. Some of the finest exponents of the ghost story have been specialists who became masters of the genre, while others wrote scary stories to the same high standard as all their work. In the middle of the 19th century the appetite for tales of terror burgeoned and a golden age was born that lasted until the outbreak of Great War. It is probably fair to say that the finest works of the genre were created during this period and it is principally from those that the twenty-seven stories in this substantial anthology have been drawn. This bumper collection of some of the best stories of the ghostly and horrific has been gathered together by Eunice Hetherington. Included in 'The First Leonaur Book of Great Ghost and Horror Stories' are 'The Were-Wolf' by H.B. Marryat, 'The Withered Arm' by Thomas Hardy, ' 'Clarimonde' by Theophile Gautier, 'The Rival Ghosts' by Brander Mathew, 'The Silent Woman' by Leopold Kompert and many more wonderful tales of the macabre. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.

Book Description: The only illustrated collection of Wells' horror fiction currently on the market, this anthology begins and closes each story with informed critical commentary and uses crisp and unsettling illustrations to usher its reader into Wells' stark and dangerous Darwinian world. H. G. Wells has been rightfully called the father of modern science fiction, bringing a level of discombobulating other-ness to his fantasies which would be borrowed in the fanciful horrors of H. P. Lovecraft, Ray Bradbury, and Stephen King. While his name is more closely associated with science fiction, his contributions to supernatural fiction, body horror, murder tales, dark mysteries, ghost stories, and weird fiction were brilliant. Containing Lovecraft and Bierce's cynicism, his writing is nonetheless freshened by his Darwinian education -- one which foresaw a universe crawling with hostile (if seemingly innocuous) competitors: man-eating squid, vampiric orchids, greedy demons, ghostly moths, and Innsmouthian fish people. The tales included herein are guaranteed to surprise, disturb, and haunt.
