Randolph (us227381) A little pricey for public domain stuff. You can find discount hardcovers at B&N with many of the same tales for less than $10.

The B&N Classic Horror Stories Collection (albeit Hardcover) are $25 each.

Luis Gonzalez | 3 comments I agree that the cover is very nice. But bonded leather is like the "mulch" of leather. It is put together from scraps and other materials and usually contains only 20% leather.

As for errors, one reviewer writes about the B&N book: "The only problem with this edition and why I can't give it 5 stars is due to an excessive amount of typographical errors within the book."

I don't think self-published books should be dismissed categorically, some are flops, but others are on NYT and WSJ bestsellers list.

Each book should stand on its own merits, not judge by imprint.

Some people will like Ghosts and Ghouls, and others won't.

Randolph (us227381) This is, how should I say, a film flam. A shill. A bit of misdirection perhaps. I’ll stay short of saying swindle. The word confidence also comes to mind. Dig a little deeper. Anyone can reprint public domain stuff, even stuff about the Marx Brothers
