In the Shadow of Edgar Allan Poe
Classic Tales of Terror, 1816–1914
‘Edgar Allan Poe did not invent the tale of terror’, writes Leslie Klinger, and in this anthology he presents 20 short horror stories by little-known writers or by authors famous in other genres. Beginning with The Sandman by ETA Hoffman, the collection includes works by Sheridan Le Fanu, MR James, Ambrose Bierce and Saki, and ends with The Squaw, a rare short story from Bram Stoker. Klinger provides an introductory note on each author.
