    My thoughts on this book are much the same for the same publisher's "Gothic Ghost Stories"... While a beautiful book overall.....the contents don't seem to share the same sensibilities.....I'd guess that as much of a third of the book isn't horror at all, but perhaps fantasy or science fiction. Quite a few of the stories, as noted by other reviewers, are classics in the field - how many times do I need to read "Screaming Skull, Dead Smile, or The Yellow Sign??

    While a very good anthology overall (a token of gratitude to my fellow writer Alexandra Medaru for this beautiful gift), the effect is mostly achieved through classic writers which are... well, they ARE classics. The contemporary writers included here are quite unreadable, with only few exceptions (most notably exception being James Lecky with his excellent „The Magnificat Of Devils”). How come? Well, no enigma: I. THE STYLE.

The contemporary writers included here are quite unreadable, with only few exceptions (most notably exception being James Lecky with his excellent „The Magnificat Of Devils”). How come? Well, no enigma: I. THE STYLE. While the classics try to charm us with their rich, flourished, carefully crafted prose, the contemporary tales are rather similar to police reports or, at best, to newspaper articles. II. THE TALE. While the classic tales emerge from mystery and from legend, making you wonder „Could this be...?”, the contemporary tales tend to emerge from pure imagination (pure enough to suspect a child hiding behind the pen name). E.g.: Strange noises coming from a room where a skull is kept - mystery; an unexplained creature devouring your arms and legs each Halloween, only to see them growing back next day - childish. Even more, some of the contemporary tales are mere reworking of classics. For example, „Justified” (DJ Tyrer) is a faded shadow of „Thing On The Doorstep” (Lovecraft). The similarities could have been only coincidental (every writer is destined to discover - sooner or later - some of his writing was done before, and it is no pleasent surprise), but the mention of „Necronomicon” warns us the story is intended as homage. Unfortunately, it is too weak and too similar for succeeding.

    Despite the rating, there are a few good stories in this collection, but this just doesn't work as a collection; you'd be better off to seek these (rare) good stories elsewhere, where they aren't tarnished by stories that seek to scare from shock value and make you feel like you need to shower afterwards. Beyond the Wall by Ambrose Bierce was quite truly the best. Many of the classics were at least all right, if not entirely the best examples of classic creepiness, but better than the modern tra Despite the rating, there are a few good stories in this collection, but this just doesn't work as a collection; you'd be better off to seek these (rare) good stories elsewhere, where they aren't tarnished by stories that seek to scare from shock value and make you feel like you need to shower afterwards. Beyond the Wall by Ambrose Bierce was quite truly the best. Many of the classics were at least all right, if not entirely the best examples of classic creepiness, but better than the modern trash presented here. This is the worst collection of any short stories I've ever read. No exaggeration. Read at your own peril.

    Overall, the majorty of the stories were subpar, and i found myself asking "wait, it this actually supposed to be horror?" Much too frequently to give this collection an actual good rating. There were some really good scary stories, but they were unfortunately few and far between.
