TheWellReadLady oooh some of my scariest faves would have to be Poe's 'Tell Tale Heart', Lovecraft's 'The Nameless City', M R James 'The Mezotint' and Ray Bradbury's 'The Whole Town's Sleeping'.

Mark Goodwin I just added one "The Most Dangerous Game" ... it is One of the Scariest Short Stories you will ever read !!!

Added paranoia by Shirley Jackson. I read horror every day and this is the only story that has ever truly frightened me.
