Famous mystery writer, Dorothy L. Sayers edited the book, "Stories of the Supernatural." In the book there are 11 stories and variety of different authors and stories. The first printing in the book was in 1963. The horror anthology starts off with a short story written by authors Charles Allston Collins and Charles Dickens, "The Trial for Murder." The last story was called, "Lukundoo" and that was written by Edward Lucas White.
The best stories in the book are, "The Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs, "Mrs. Amworth" by E.F. Benson, "Where Their Fire Is Not Quenched" by May Sinclair, and "The Open Window" by Saki. "Where Their Fire Is Not Quenched," was the first time read, so that was interesting it had to do with hell and damnation. "Mrs. Amworth," is one of the best vampire stories out there. It's very chilling!
There were some that weren't that great like "Lukundoo" by Edward Lucas White and "The Seventh Man" by Arthur Quiller-Couch . "The Novel of The Black Seal," by Arthur Machen was interesting but it did have it's dull parts. "The Anticipator" by Morley Roberts, was a very strange story and one that read twice.
The whole book is around 175 pages, so it's a short book and a book that for most readers could finished in a day or even a few hours. It all depends how much these horror stories interest you. For those who like classic horror stories will enjoy this book, they are mostly from the late 1800s to the 1920s. Not sure all the dates on the stories though so some could even be later.
Fans of the macabre and classic stories will enjoy it. Some are better than others but most are pretty chilling and interesting. A lot of stories that haven't read before, so that was a nice treat. Some though like "The Monkey's Paw," has been read thousand of times but personally doesn't get old.
This whole collection is 4 out of 5 stars, it does have some dull stories but overall it's an intriguing horror collection because out of 11 there are like 3 that aren't that great. This collection would be a great book to read during this Halloween season too.
