    This is a great collection for anyone that would like an easy to access collection of classic, old horror fiction. A lot of these authors are on public domain and Project Gutenberg, but it is much more convenient to have them all in one place on your Kindle. There is a convenient index where all of the authors are listed, with each author having a short biography on their page. Many of the stories are 19th and early 20th century, so the language is often dated.

Many of the stories are 19th and early 20th century, so the language is often dated. There are also many dated British words, but conveniently, most of them are in the Kindle dictionary when highlighted. I highly recommend this to anyone who hasn’t explored horror fiction as much as they would like to, like me. This is a great place to start, in my opinion. Not interested in less known authors? There are still many well known names in this collection: Ambrose Bierce, Algernon Blackwood, Lovecraft, Robert W. Chambers, Lord Dunsany, Charlotte Gilman Perkins, William Hope Hodgson, Poe, Kafka, and more. Worth the 99 cents price. 4 stars because of grammatical errors.

    As it says on the tin, a thousand classic tales of horror from over a hundred masterful yarnspinners from Achmed Abdullah to Alexander Woollcott. Mark Twain appears on the list, Washington Irving, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Edgar Allan Poe. I'm going way too slow to finish this in a timely manner, so I'm listing it now so that this won't sit on my Reading list for a year.

These are great stories that most of us have read or seen movie-ized, and in a collection this size, you're bound to find something you haven't seen before. It's a lifetime collection in one volume, and if you're into that, you'll be glad to have it; I know I am.

    Good selection of authors. Nice introductory pieces. Shame about the scanning errors. Ok this is a huge book and not expensive on Kindle. But it would have been nice if the person(s) who lifted these texts from Project Gutenberg had run the text through a type checker. Many annoying scan errors could have been easily removed. I checked the stories and compared them with the Gutenberg scans and they are identical. Did anyone actually read these tales before committing them to an anthology? This i Good selection of authors.

I checked the stories and compared them with the Gutenberg scans and they are identical. Did anyone actually read these tales before committing them to an anthology? This is very sloppy and a little disingenuous. I can deal with the odd typo, but some stories were nearly unreadable. Had a bit of copy editing been applied I would have rated this 5 stars.

    Wow, I've just bought this for 75p on Kindle thinking that there would be a few short stories to fill gaps in my collection, but there are literally hundreds. There is a good index and introduction to all of the authors. A well put together collection.

    Wonderful, but exasperating collection. This is a recollection of classic supernatural and gothic works at an incredible bargain price; however, actually read it on my kindle fire was very frustrating. The file frequently crashes, leaving the in infuriated reader to find his way back to page 378 or wherever else he foolishly attempted to turn the page in some gothic time. For me this problem made the book useless and literally unreadable, and for that technical reason I can not recommend it.

    I thought this collection was exceptional! It's breadth was amazing! So many different authors with such different viewpoints and styles! I found this collection to be astounding! So many different authors with such varied viewpoints and writing styles. It was also a great mixture of little known stories with classics. Truly enjoyable! Greg

    Too many "Masters" omitted This book contains too many authors who seem to be here to fill in the pages. It misses out many authors who I believe are in their own right are Masters of horror. It is also not properly edited and varies between the trying to keep the original author's English style and bad editing.
