Shelves: mystery
This is an anthology of short stories by some of the top fantasy writers. First time in print, compiled and published in 1984 are works by McCammon, Matheson, Williamson, Bloch,Bradbury, Beaumont and more. Writers who have publishing creds with Playboy, Penthouse, Esquire, Ellery Queen and numbers of anthology collections. Twilight Zone, Battlestar Galactia, The A-Team, The Saint and Alfred Hitchcock to name a few.

I am more of a mystery fan than fantasy, but these stories have mystery in them in

It's a bunch of short horror stories, some are good, some not so good! You know how that goes...

The last short story has piqued my interest in Charles Beaumont, though, and I will definitely be checking out more of his writing in the future.

Nice set of original stories. Best of the bunch include Robert McCammon's "Bightcrawlers", "Soft" by F. Paul Wilson, and "My Grandmother's Japonicas" by CCharles Beaumont. There is also an interview with Richard Matheson.
