"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.

Opinion

From Library Staff

I love the re-issue of Penguin's Horror line of titles. This is a reprint, but a good collection of tales from strictly American writers spanning Poe and Washington Irving to Joyce Carol Oates. Another great place to start.
