Description - American Supernatural Tales by S. T. Joshi

It takes an unusual caliber of writer to deliver readers into the terrifying beyond - to conjure tales that are not only unsettling, but unnatural, with elements and characters that are all the more disturbing for their impossibility. From Edgar Allan Poe to Stephen King, American authors have excelled at journeying into the supernatural. You'll find them here, including H. P. Lovecraft, Shirley Jackson, Ray Bradbury, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and others. An unprecedented anthology of phantasmagoric, spectral, and demonic writing, American Supernatural Tales celebrates our enduring need to be spooked and horrified. Penguin Horror Series Penguin Horror is a collection of novels, stories, and poems by masters of the genre, curated by filmmaker and lifelong horror literature reader Guillermo del Toro. Included in the series are some of his favorites- Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, The Raven- Tales and Poems by Edgar Allan Poe, The Things on the Doorstep and Other Weird Stories by H.P. Lovecraft, The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, Haunted Castles- The Complete Gothic Stories by Ray Russell, and American Supernatural Tales, edited, by S. T. Joshi and featuring stories from Ray Bradbury, Joyce Carol Oates, Robert E. Howard, and Stephen King, alongside many others. Penguin Horror reminds us what del Toro writes in his series introduction; 'To learn what we fear is to learn who we are.'
