About the Author:

John Richard Stephens is a full-time writer and anthologist. He lives in Cambria, California.

From Publishers Weekly:

This solid collection of classic gothic horror stories from the 19th and early 20th centuries relies heavily on highly anthologized workhorses such as Edgar Allan Poe's "The Facts of M. Valdemar's Case," an excerpt from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and H.P. Lovecraft's "Herbert West: Reanimator." Stevens also includes a few lesser-known pieces from authors famous for more than horror, such as Jack London's "A Thousand Deaths" and Mark Twain's "A Curious Dream," along with obscurities such as an 1888 newspaper article about a hanged man dancing by reflex after the body was cut down, and imagist poet Amy Lowell's polyphonic "The Cross-Roads." More retrospective than groundbreaking, this anthology is tailor-made for academia and will also interest horror fans curious about the ancestors of modern-day supernatural tales.
