Another Groff Conklin edited anthology. I think the guy had pretty good taste. This has stories by Bradbury, Sturgeon, Poe, Lovecraft, Bierce, Walter M. Miller, gud de Maupassant, David H. Keller and quite a few others. Except for the Poe and Lovecraft stories, most of the tales are less collected stories from the writers, which I appreciated. Still, I didn't find anything here that was just awe inspiring.
