Horrific Fables collects eight of the creepiest, most disturbing tales ever written from the masters of the medium, plus two never before published original stories. The stories contained within the pages of this volume quite simply represent the most potent examples of terror ever scribed. In this collection you'll encounter the unsettling creations of eight celebrated literary pioneers whose extraordinary imaginations laid the groundwork for nearly all horror writing that followed. These chilling tales from the minds of Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce, H. P. Lovecraft, Guy de Maupassant, J. Sheridan Le Fanu, W. W. Jacobs, Jack London, and M. R. James, along with two original stories from the editor, will enthrall you, heighten your senses to what may be lurking in the shadows, and little by little, gnaw away at your peace of mind, making this book the perfect companion for a damp, drizzly autumn night.
