Subtitled "A Treasury of Fiendish Tales Old & New", this volume of 52 stories contains works by many well-known authors -- even E.A. Poe, R.L. Stevenson and Bram Stoker. It includes copyrighted pieces from 1925 thru the late 1980's. The stories are very short, which makes good catch-as-catch-can reading like lunch and traffic. Some are very funny, with witty endings. Some are spooky.

I recommend it for anyone who wants light reading with a twist.
