American Supernatural Tales PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

American Supernatural Tales free pdf Part of a new six-volume series of the best in classic horror, selected by award-winning director Guillermo del Toro. American Supernatural Tales is the ultimate collection of weird and frightening American short fiction. As Stephen King will attest, the popularity of the occult in American literature has only grown since the days of Edgar Allan Poe. The book celebrates the richness of this tradition with chilling contributions from some of the nation's brightest literary lights, including Poe himself, H. P. Lovecraft, Shirley Jackson, Ray Bradbury, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and-of course-Stephen King. By turns phantasmagoric, spectral, and demonic, this is a frighteningly good collection of stories. S. T. Joshi is a freelance writer, scholar, and editor whose previous books include Documents of American Prejudice- In Her Place: A Documentary History of Prejudice against Women- God's Defenders: What They Believe and Why They Are Wrong- Atheism: A Reader- H. L. Mencken on Religion- The Agnostic Reader- and What Is Man? And Other Irreverent Essays by Mark Twain.
