A reissue of the finest collection of horror stories
Anthony Vercoe – Flies
Starving and exhausted, a tramp believes he is saved when he stumbles across a delicious meal in an empty house in Holborn. But the clang of a bell and the slam of a door locks him into a place that becomes hideous, with an incessant buzzing coming from somewhere . . .
Pan Macmillan are proud to present a brand new reissue of the first ever edition of The Pan Book of Horror Stories.
Fiendish, fantastic and downright chilling, these tales were originally selected for Pan by legendary horror anthologist Herbert van Thal. Fifty years on, they are as compelling, evocative and macabre as ever. Highlighted by a new introduction from Johnny Mains, ‘A Brief History of the Horrors’, the legacy of this astonishing collection – that became a defining influence on the genre – is self-evident.
