Peter Haining – Everyman Book Of Classic Horror Stories

Posted by demonik on December 5, 2007

Peter Haining (ed.) – Everyman Book Of Classic Horror Stories (Dent, 1976)

Everyman Horror

Introduction – Peter Haining

Edgar Allan Poe – Ligeia
Nathaniel Hawthorne – Young Goodman Brown
Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu -Schalken the Painter
Guy de Maupassant – The Drowned Man
ETA Hoffman – The Sandman
Ambrose Bierce – The Middle Toe of the Right Foot
Bram Stoker – The Squaw
MR James – ‘Oh, Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad’
Algernon Blackwood – The Old Man of Visions
HP Lovecraft – The Nameless City
Robert Bloch – That Hell-Bound Train
Ray Bradbury – The Emissary
Edogawa Rampo – The Hell of Mirrors
Mervyn Peake – Danse Macabre
Arthur Porges – The Fanatic

We’ve seen this listed elsewhere as Peter Haining’s first anthology, but Vault are not convinced. The confusion seems to have arisen from the fact that an earlier edition was published by Sidgwick & Jackson as  The Hell Of Mirrors (1974). This is not the same The Hell Of Mirrors as that published by New English Library/ Four Square in 1965!

Thanks to Alwyn Turner of Trash Fiction for providing the cover scan and contents.
