    1. S.T. Joshi delivers an enjoyable collection with Great Tales of Terror, which actually contains some great tales of terror—true to its title. Many of these stories are quite visceral and hit you in a rather disturbing way, as you would hope they would.To name a few: “The Return of the Soul” by Robert Hichens offers up a demented tale of reincarnation and revenge—although not quite in the way you would expect. Théophile Gautier’s “The Mummy’s Foot” presents the mystery of a stran [...]

    2. S.T. Joshi has compiled a cool collection of terror, weird, and supernatural fiction. I think most of it is more weird fiction than terror, making the title a touch deceptive, but that doesn't take much away from the coolness of these stories. Most of them were written in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Many of these are more obscure writings by some well-known authors.While not all of them were spectacular, the majority were really great. "The Return of the Soul", "The Coach", "The Diary of a Go [...]

    3. Another great S.T. Joshi-edited collection, just slightly lower in quality than the other Dover anthology I reviewed ("Great Weird Tales"). A few of these stories are overwrought or buried under flowery prose, but like the other collection the majority are well worth the effort. Some of my favorites include Robert Hitchens' "Return of the Soul" (despite its blatant misogyny), W.F. Harvey's "The Tortoise, Edith Nesbit's "The Three Drugs," and Algernon Blackwood's "The Man Who Found Out."

    4. Great collection! Especially if you're looking for horror fic that is well-styled and thought provoking, instead of the sex-'n-gore nightmare shorts you may find in modern works. In other words: can be read before bed without disrupting your melatonin supplement.
