I have owned this book for years and I had never actually managed to finish. I'd get maybe half way through and then I'd stop short. So, this time, I was determined to finish it. I have to say, I really didn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped. Most of the stories were either predictable or made no logical sense. Some of the stories didn't even bother to stick with the main topic of being creepy creature stories. Apparently aliens also counted as creepy creatures, which I wasn't really anticipatin ...more

Copyright 1994. A Barnes & Noble special. This one is MUCH better than the 100 horror story book.

It seems like I've been reading this book forever. I actually started it before Halloween and finally finished it. It's basically a comprehensive presentation of 20th century horror fiction.

There were some pearls in this collection, there was some poop in this collection but it was all worth everything to me to read H.P. Lovecraft's, "The Unnameable." WOW, hadn't even heard of that story - it's Lovecraft arguing with his own detractors, maybe himself, great to read. Many of the stories read like slush pile rejects someone gathered up and noticed there was enough to throw out an anthology, some of them are old and charming in what was thought to be horror then or how "horrible" it w ...more

I liked this book for the old stories that it contained. I love the old fashioned language, the feeling of another time that they evoked and some genuinely creepy tales. since there are 100 I am not going to try and give a review of them, just to say that I found it enjoyable and am glad that I read it.
