    1. The third in a series of blockbuster horror anthologies. Contents are as follows: THE STRANGE ADVENTURES OF A PRIVATE SECRETARY IN NEW YORK, by Algernon Blackwood. Forget the long-winded title, this is one of the best short stories I've read in my entire life. Nerve-wracking, full of a creeping suspense, with bags of atmosphere and imagination to sustain it, a story that showcases the author at his very best. 5/5THE LAST NIGHT, by Charles Birkin. Birkin was an author who went for the grotesque r [...]


    2. Once again Herbert van Thal has collected together a fine assortment of ghoulish tales. Part of the fun of reading horror stories is to experience varied takes on familiar themes. What would a horror anthology be without old dark houses, fiendish forms of revenge, cannibalism, murderous psychopaths Suspense, gore, black humour and maybe even a touch of poetry. All part of the flesh-creeping feast you will find in the third in this legendary series of anthologies. (Van Thal may have been a bit la [...]


    3. Lesson I have learned from this book: If the mysterious widow of the man you had an affair with invites you to stay in her isolated castle in the French countryside, complete with dungeons and hidden passages, and her only servants are an elderly crone and her seven-foot-tall idiot son, and no one knows you're there - well maybe you shouldn't go.


    4. A decent collection but this volume is a drop in quality after the excellent first two of the series. Of the 21 stories, none stands out particularly, unless you count H. G. Wells's THE CONE, which is notable for all the wrong reasons, being almost incomprehensible.


    5. Contains one of PB's All Time Greats :"The Facts in the Case of M Valdemar" by Edgar Allen PoeMan hypnotised at point of death - the experimenter seems skilled in hypnosis but as an interviewer is frankly lamentable - still, much memorable tongue waggling, which can compensate for a lot, as you know.
