The Folio Book of Horror Stories
Edited and introduced by Ramsey Campbell
Corey Brickley’s dark illustrations notch up the fear factor in this collection of terrifying tales tracing the history of horror from classic Edgar Allan Poe to contemporary Stephen King.
The thrill of being terrified is a trait peculiar to the human condition and the horror genre ensures there is always more to savour. By no means a modern phenomenon, this branch of fiction enjoys a rich tradition, and the skill involved in fostering fear makes it a highly respected craft among writers.
